Hi Charles. This discussion belongs on the macports-users mailing
list so I'm directing it back there, but see my answers below.

This means the maintainer of the port has not yet resolved this issue:

That means libXaw3d.7.dylib was built back when XFree86 was
installed. XFree86 provided version 6.1.0 of libXt.6.dylib. But now
you're using Apple's X11 which is older and only provides version
6.0.0 of libXt.6.dylib. Therefore libXaw3d.7.dylib needs to be
rebuilt. You can use "port provides /opt/local/lib/libXaw3d.7.dylib"
to discover which port provides that library. It turns out it's the
Xaw3d port. So you should rebuild Xaw3d with "sudo port -ncuf upgrade
Xaw3d". You may find other ports that were built against the
libraries provided by XFree86 which now have to be rebuilt to use the
libraries provided by Apple's X11.
