To use port that depends on openmotif I had to manually activate +flat_namespace variant. Looks like this may happen with all the ports that require openmotif. Everything else works fine. But you may find that you have to switch back and forth between the universal and +flat_namespace variants

Then you simply need to install xorg-libXt with both the +universal and +flat_namespace variants.

sudo port install xorg-libXt +flat_namespace +universal
