It was also suggested there to recompile MP
using its own already installed curl port.

./configure --with-curlprefix=/opt/local/
results in MacPorts that uses its own /opt/local/bin/curl
to download distfiles, and my immediate problem disappears.

But the circular dependency on itself doesn't seem right.

Should the curl port be a fetch dependency (if there is such a thing)
for the affected ports, and should MP use the port's curl(1)
to download their distfiles?
