   Did you do the first two steps?  From your other comments, it  
sounds like you didn't have the port installed, so the first to port  
commands below should change that.  If that's not the problem,  
perhaps you've installed ports in a non-default location?

       # First, clean out the old build.  Next, we 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
