Problems building mpkg: dependency pkg missing

I'm trying to build a mpkg for the latest version of SWI-Prolog  
(5.6.36), which adds a new dependency (xft2). I've added the  
dependency to the portfile and run the portindex command in order to  

rsync.rsync.darwinports.org_dpupdate_dports pmoura$ port info swi-prolog
swi-prolog 5.6.36, lang/swi-prolog (Variants: universal, darwin_6,  
st, mt)
Build Dependencies: gawk, junit
Library Dependencies: readline, readline, ncurses, jpeg, libmcrypt,  
XFree86, gmp, xft2
Platforms: darwin
Maintainers: wielemak at pmoura at

However, I'm getting:

pmmbp:~ pmoura$ sudo port -k install swi-prolog
--->  Fetching swi-prolog
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for swi-prolog
--->  Extracting swi-prolog

--->  Creating pkg for readline-5.2.001
pmmbp:~ pmoura$

I.e. the pkg for xft2 is not created and included on the mpkg. Any  

All the best,
