That looks like you don't have XQuartz installed. MacPorts' copy of Gtk
uses an X11 backend, which requires that you have X installed.
Unfortunately the native Quartz backend of Gtk still had a couple of
issues when I last checked. Homebrew's default may be to use the Quartz
backend, which would explain why this works out of the box.
