 I'd rather not do this.  Xvfb was deprecated around a decade ago in favor
 of Xfake, which itself was deprecated years ago in favor of the Xorg DDX's
 use of the dummy driver.

 You should be able to just use xinit with the dummy driver.  Both are
 installed with the XQuartz package but don't have ports in MacPorts yet.
 I suggest you give that a try instead of using xvfb-run.
