I am running MacPorts 1.70 now and want to update to 1.71.

But when I ran "port selfupdate" I got:
checking for XOpenDisplay in -lX11... no
Unknown configuration problem. Please install the X11 runtime
and/or X11 SDK  packages from the Xcode Developer Tools CD
configure: error: Broken X11 install

I've installed X11SDK in Xcode package. When I tried to install "X11  
update 2006" it says my system does not need to do that.

Macbook 13.3'', Leopard 10.5.6.

Thanks :)
