 possible for some more of their libraries to be imported into macports?

 useful functionality to Scribus.

 are others like libmwaw that could be useful too in the future.

 Thanks for your request, Craig.  I ported the existing ports you mention
 as dependencies of inkscape.

 If you are of such a mind, the surest way to get these new ones included
 is to take a shot at putting together one or more preliminary Portfiles
 yourself. You can use one of the existing Portfiles as a guide and submit
 them here for review and approval.  We can always use a new maintainer and
 I and the other maintainers would be happy to give you a hand to get

 If these libraries are similar to the ones I've already done, they would
 make good starter projects and, of course, its always a plus to have a
 maintainer who has an interest in putting the ports to good use himself.

 What do you think?
