By design, MacPorts only depends on other software installed using  
MacPorts, and not on any software you've installed manually. 

If you need options for a software package that are not in the  
MacPorts port for that software, perhaps the options can be added to  
the port. Consult the port maintainer, or if there is none, this list.
