Thank you for your suggestions.  I don't know 
macports or dbus at all well. I can report data, 
but I'm glad there are skilled and helpful 
macports people to interpret it.

Interesting.  It looks like dbus @1.2.12_5 has 
point to /opt/local/Library/, but there's no 

%diff -u 
No such file or directory

% ls -l 
-rw-r--r--  2 root  admin  714 Feb  6 02:22 
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  admin   66 May 20 18:46 

% ls -l /opt/local/Library/
total 0
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  102 May 19 02:31 Frameworks
[Note: no ./LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist file! ]


I'm not sure what to make of this.  Does dbus 
@1.2.12_5 fail because its 
file never got installed?
