I am getting something similar.

I initially installed inkscape at 0.92.0 (default) which installs the x11 
variant - but it wouldn't start up, so I tried inkscape @0.92.0_0+quartz 
but that fails the same way
I am running from the command line, and the following diagnostic 
information is output to the terminal:

Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.

For the record, I am running on a MacBook Pro (Retina, Mid 2012), with 
macOS Sierra 10.12.2 (16C67) and Macports 2.3.5 and xCode Version 8.2.1 

Is anyone else getting this error? Does anyone else have any ideas?
