The following worked for me to get around the goffice build problems:

       # First, clean out the old build, then do everything
       # up to, but not including, the configure stage:

       $ sudo port clean goffice
       $ sudo port patch goffice

       # It seems that GtkTooltips is deprecated, but many
       # files in goffice use it.  So, we'll re-enable the
       # deprecated GTK features in the build by removing a
       # line in the configure script:

       $ sudo sed -i .bak /GTK_DISABLE_DEPRECATED/d' \

       # Now, we pick up with the configure, build and install of
       # goffice:

       $ sudo port install goffice
