> 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.

I followed some instructions on building the dependencies one by one with +quartz on and can now install Inkscape.
I’m beginning to understand this +x11 vs. +quartz build situation I think.

However that just gets to the 100% repeatable crash that seems to be well known (lldb bt):

* thread #1: tid = 0x37abb8, 0x00007fffb65870f3 libsystem_c.dylib`_UTF8_mbsnrtowcs + 287, queue = '', stop reason = EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=1, address=0x0)
  * frame #0: 0x00007fffb65870f3 libsystem_c.dylib`_UTF8_mbsnrtowcs + 287
    frame #1: 0x00007fffb6581f02 libsystem_c.dylib`__collate_mbstowcs + 123
    frame #2: 0x00007fffb65ab79c libsystem_c.dylib`strcoll_l + 76
    frame #3: 0x0000000102d50f99 libglib-2.0.0.dylib`g_utf8_collate + 105
    frame #4: 0x0000000100286d73 inkscape`font_factory::GetUIStyles(_PangoFontFamily*) + 221
    frame #5: 0x000000010028c4c8 inkscape`Inkscape::FontLister::update_font_list(SPDocument*) + 1490

I will dig deeper if I can figure how to get source line and debug symbols for Inkscape under McPorts.
(Locale not init’ed maybe? Bad args to g_utf8_collate?)

I’m still researching how build Inkscape against MacPort dependencies.
