gtk2, in turn, by default uses X11. gtk2 has no_x11 and quartz variants which can be used (together? separately? I don't know) to have gtk2 use Quartz methods instead of X11. But I don't know if py26-wxpython can use a gtk2 that isn't using X11, or if it can, whether that's better than using its carbon variant. If you want to try the no_x11 and/or quartz variants, you probably have to first uninstall all ports; using those variants is a decision you need to make at the beginning, before anything is installed.
