Hi Chuck and Ryan,

There's a new release of transcode, and the developer suggests a 
solution to the ImageMagick build problem. I enclose an updated portfile 
-- could you look at how the ImageMagick path should be given? I also 
include the fix in #15547.

Sorry for being so late.

I found some time to investigate this issue.
No symlink should be needed; just run configure with


The root problem is that configure can't find wand/magick-wand.h (it's a
header layout problem - unfortunately this isn't easy to catch without
aid in ./configure because I've seen two-three differente layouts, and
everyone has to be supported!); the linking problem You've seen isn't
a problem.

The configure is just trying to catch (yet another) ImageMagick oddity,
the sudden rename of libMagick to libMagickCore (Note that ./configure
tests both libraries above before to give up).

If manually specifying the headers doesn't work, please let me know
(enclosing the full configure.log again, please).

Thanks for the patience,

Francesco Romani // Ikitt
