Inkscape 0.92.0 now available on MacPorts

I have latest (2..7.11) XQuartz installed under macOS Sierra (10.12.2). I installed inkscape+quartz and insckape-app. When I either run inkscape from Terminal command line or from inkscape.app created by the latter, I see the XQiartz icon repeatedly appear and bounce in my Dock and then disappear. But I never see an Inkscape window.
How to fix?
(I did read the exchange shown below, but that just further confused things for me!)
