openvas-libraries, openvas-libnasl, and openvas-server all build fine.
openvas-client stops here:
---> Attempting to fetch tiff-3.8.2.tar.gz from
---> Verifying checksum(s) for tiff
---> Extracting tiff
On Mac OS X 10.5, tiff 3.8.2 requires Xcode 3.1 or later but you have
Error: Target org.macports.extract returned: incompatible Xcode version
Error: The following dependencies failed to build: gtk2 tiff xorg-
libXcomposite xorg-compositeproto xorg-libXext xorg-libXfixes xorg-

Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
There's another package, openvas-plugins, that contains the actual
vulnerability tests. It shouldn't be necessary to the port, since openvas has
an update-plugins script that fetches them via rsync, but I haven't tested it
on an empty plugins installation yet.
BTW many thanks. It's pretty incredible (to me anyway) that you would put a
port like this together so quickly.
