Indeed that's a short list; I'm sure I have all of those installed too. So instead it's probably some port I have installed (I have well over a thousand ports installed) that's needed that alpine doesn't declare a dependency on. One such port is probably gss, but in the ticket, two people have tried installing gss and it didn't help. So it may be something else that I haven't found yet. If you could attach your debug output to the ticket too maybe that will help narrow it down.
