My last try with it was disappointing, which caused me to use Fink for these last few years: but, after realizing a few years had passed, I thought I'd give MacPorts a fresh start.  After less than an hour I'm already running into problems: libzvt will not build.

The resolution would presumably be to make libzvt compatible with the latest gtk2 version. Since libzvt's developers have apparently abandoned it (last release was in 2002), and we don't have a maintainer for it in MacPorts, someone will have to volunteer to figure out how to fix it.
