Isn't /usr/X11R6/lib in port's library search path? That means the  
gtk2 dependency on XFree86 should be resolved from Apple's X11  
(because the dependency is a library dependency on libX11.6, which  
Apple's X11 provides).

Incidentally, I just checked and I have gtk2 installed, but not XFree86.
