It is not, but it should be trivial to add it.

qmake followed by make did it for me, the application works fine.

For me
    sudo port install qt4-mac phonon
did it. OK, I didn't explore what ports I had installed before, so
there might be other dependencies, but compiling Goldendict was
trivial enough after settling that.

(Actually, I wasn't able to compile phonon at first, but that must
have been due to the fact that I had "qt4-mac +framework" installed.)
