Error installing ncurses (haven't updated in a LONG time)

Right. Here's the next error (which might even be the last one): 

--->  Computing dependencies for ImageMagick
--->  Configuring ImageMagick
Error: org.macports.configure for port ImageMagick returned: configure failure: command execution failed
Please see the log file for port ImageMagick for details:
Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1

Also: do you know anything about mcryptlib? My phpMyAdmin always complains that it isn't installed but it shows up on my list. 

Thanks so much for the help.
