It installs fine for me with the same setup as you. Your problem is that you have files in /usr/local/ that are interfering with the build. We do not support having anything in /usr/local/ for this exact reason. Your workaround is to move the /usr/local/ directory to /usr/local.moved/ or whatever, clean the p5.12-locale-gettext port, and try again.

There are many tickets out there that have been deemed duplicates and refer back to 28789, and many more which pop up during google searches. There's a lot of stuff out there so this seems like a common thing, maybe I'm using incompatible combinations of OS, macports, and Xcode...
