It's correct the ticket is unresolved. I hadn't seen it until you pointed it out just now. I have no trouble building alpine on Snow Leopard so something is different about your system than mine. The ticket was filed by someone with a Leopard ppc machine, so I'm also testing on my Leopard ppc Mac to see if I can reproduce the problem there.

Could you show us what ports are installed on your system?

port installed | tee ~/Desktop/portsinstalled.txt

Then attach the file portsinstalled.txt from your desktop to your reply email. I wonder if you have some port installed that I don't, that's getting picked up by alpine and messing with things.
