Comment (by tom-seddon):

 An additional note.

 I had a similar error from geoclue2, which MacPorts went to install when I
 did a port install boost at 1.63.0. Relevant snippet from its log file: (I'll
 spare you the terminal output)

 I guessed that one thing to do was to try installing libreadline at 6, so I
 did port install readline at 6.

 % sudo port install readline at 6
 --->  Computing dependencies for readline
 --->  Cleaning readline
 --->  Updating database of binaries
 --->  Scanning binaries for linking errors
 --->  Found 55 broken files, matching files to ports
 --->  Found 8 broken ports, determining rebuild order
 You can always run 'port rev-upgrade' again to fix errors.
 The following ports will be rebuilt:
  fluidsynth @1.1.6
  gawk @4.1.4
  webkit-gtk3 @2.4.11+video
  webkit2-gtk @2.14.2+gtk2+x11
  ruby22 @2.2.5
  openldap @2.4.40
  gnupg @1.4.21
  texlive-bin @2016+x11
 Continue? [Y/n]:

 Note that this seems to involve an upgrade to gawk, and the upgraded gawk
 turns out to depend on a newer libreadline:

 % otool -l `which gawk` | grep -i readline
          name /opt/local/lib/libreadline.7.dylib (offset 24)

 And sure enough, this time when it got to geoclue2, it built OK. MacPorts
 is still working on stuff, but once it's done I will try upgrading poppler
 again. Maybe this time it will work.

 So this looks like maybe there's stuff with an unannounced dependency on
 gawk...? I don't know enough about MacPorts to say for sure. Let me know
 if you want any more details.
