I found I could get past that problem if I used the install disk that  
come with my MacBook to update X11, I had installed X11 from the  
apple download. Now I get a different problem when all the  
dependencies are installed but installing librsvg sort of fails with  
this message

Updating /opt/local/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
Error: Target returned: couldn't change working  
directory to "/opt/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/loaders": no such file or  
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

I don't have a 'opt/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.4.0/loaders' directory but I  
do have ' /opt/local/lib/gtk-2.0/2.10.0/loaders'

I say it sort of fails because the command line tool rsvg that comes  
with librsvg seems to be working fine.
