No, it means you already have gtk2 installed but with +x11 (which is the
default). Sadly gtk2 does not support having both x11 and quartz variants
active at the same time, and the two are not even source compatible because
of things like <gdk/x11.h> as part of its X11 API.

Your options boil down to: either have a separate MacPorts installation
somewhere other than /opt.local with a gtk2 +quartz and programs that
require that, or remove all dependents of gtk2, reinstall gtk2 +quartz,
reinstall the dependencies you removed, and hope they're all compatible
with gtk2 +quartz. :/
