I have posted to the octave zenity specific list but they told me that it seems to be something wrong with MacPorts. They say the zenity command line tool is not properly installed. 

Zenity installed by MacPorts should have been installed at /opt/local/bin/zenity. Is it there? Does it work if you run /opt/local/bin/zenity?

What if you run just "zenity" -- does it find it or say it's not found? If not found, what's "echo $PATH" say?
