This is a deep rabbit hole, fyi. The gap between cabal and macports is
non-trivial. I was able to get pandoc (and add a pandoc-devel port)
that both work but since there are *so* many ports that are required
to get pandoc to work, I've been lazy with filing the tickets for each
one. I'll leave it to a macports dev to incorporate them [^1] :-)


I don't know how comfortable you feel with using a local repository
[^2] but feel free to try my repo [^3] out to get pandoc working for
