You are building on 10.5 Intel still I believe.
I'll see how it works on my 10.5 Intel system. Will help if I can.
I appreciate your efforts so far.

I will put together a PR to update it on MacPorts once a few final systems build it (getting a few systems to build something is easy -- getting them all to build it is harder).
