Comment (by kjyv):

 The borgbackup Port currently includes a patch that modifies setup.py to
 allow msgpack > 0.5.6. However borg is said to not work with newer
 versions and also there is another check in the code that produces the
 above error. It is probably not advisable to patch any files and instead
 make sure that msgpack 0.5.6 is available. Possibly a copy of that version
 specifically for borg instead of a port dependency. Apparently depends_lib
 can not depend on a specific version of a Port.
