This appears to be the problem reported in

The problem is not with glade but with its dependency gst-plugins-base.

The cdparanoia plugin in that port is not compatible with
the latest version of cdparanoia provided by MacPorts.

The problem was fixed by disabling the build of this plugin by default.

The fact that you are seeing this error indicates that you do not have
the latest version of port gst-plugins-base.

Please update your ports by doing the following

sudo port clean gst-plugins-base
sudo port selfupdate
sudo port upgrade outdated

then try installing glade again.

By the way, the port glade is an obsolete version (2.12.2) which is not
currently recommended nor maintained by the upstream developers.  Port 
glade3 (version 3.6.6) is the current stable release and is to be preferred.

sudo port install glade3
