My first post to this list. I'm mostly using MacPorts to control my G5

However I've tried installing some additional applications that I used
to use under Debian (PPC) but cannot get to compile.

The main one I'm interested in is kdenlive for video editing,
unfortunately I've hit a brick wall in glib2, I cannot get this to

tracker here:

It seems that the problem with glib2 might be the version of gcc being
used. I thought I would then have a go at using a version of gcc from
MacPorts to see if a later version would work ok. However both gcc44 and
gcc45 fail with the following errors:

"checking for the correct version of the gmp/mpfr/mpc libraries... no
configure: error: Building GCC requires GMP 4.2+, MPFR 2.3.1+ and MPC
Try the --with-gmp, --with-mpfr and/or --with-mpc options to specify
their locations.


If you obtained GMP, MPFR and/or MPC from a vendor distribution package,
make sure that you have installed both the libraries and the header
files.  They may be located in separate packages."

As far as I can tell the correct packages are installed:

gmp @5.0.1
mpfr @3.0.1
libmpc @0.9

So my first question is if these MacPort installs pull down the header
files and the libraries or do I need to install separate ports for the
