I was able to build ports for openvas-client, openvas-libnasl,  
openvas-libraries and openvas-server. They build for me on Mac OS X  
10.4 Intel. I just committed them so they should be available to you  
within the hour. I didn't test them, except to verify that openvas- 
client opens, because I don't know the software.

Is this what you need? Can you try these ports and let me know if  
they work for you?
