One person mentioned a problem with Xquartz on Sierra, which was resolved by reinstalling Xquartz.


I mentioned that since High Sierra is new, at this time you may expect to encounter more issues with MacPorts software on High Sierra than you would on Sierra. You'll also have to build more ports from source, since we have not yet built all ports for High Sierra on our build server. We also haven't made a binary installer of MacPorts for High Sierra yet, so you'll have to build MacPorts itself from source.
