Download the text version of the patch here: 

Call it "pango.diff" and place it on your desktop.

Clean the pango port, extract it, then go into the pango work  
directory and patch it. Then install.

sudo port clean pango
sudo port extract pango
cd $(port work pango)/pango-*
patch -p1 < ~/desktop/pango.diff
sudo port -d install pango 2>&1 | tee ~/Desktop/pango.txt

Should this not work, the output has been saved in pango.txt on your  
desktop which you can send back here to the list or attach to the  
MacPorts ticket.
