No, I would agree with you. Even if no ports for the various used ‘local’ components exist, for future protection the audacity port should be configured to *always* use its internal versions, regardless of what might or might not be available via macports (or worse elsewhere). That way the builds remain predictable. If at some point ports for one or other of these internal components become available, then the audacity port can be, if desired, updated to depend upon and use that port. Everything remains deterministic, which is how it should be.
