There are missing symbols in libgio-2.0.dylib, which is installed by the glib2 port, so I suspect it has something to do with with https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftrac.macports.org%2Fticket%2F54981&data=02%7C01%7Cstephen.langer%40nist.gov%7Cfd2f55278e2146cc452008d5dd12a3f3%7C2ab5d82fd8fa4797a93e054655c61dec%7C1%7C1%7C636657994483797873&sdata=mz08XDFBBXvwOwIXwHWLvNgpg2EjFUOrpNcjUlHGH%2Fg%3D&reserved=0.   I installed glib2 with +x11 and installed everything else with +quartz, which is the only way to get gtk2 working on quartz.

    This is surprising to me and probably not what we intended. If you want quartz, you're supposed to have to use the quartz variant for everything, and if you instead want x11, you're supposed to have to use the x11 variant for everything. I don't use the quartz variants so I don't have personal experience with them.

I uninstalled glib2 and reinstalled it with +quartz -x11.  My program fails at start up with

dyld: lazy symbol binding failed: Symbol not found: _g_desktop_app_info_get_type

  Referenced from: /opt/local/stow/ports-quartz/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/site-packages/gtk-2.0/gio/unix.so

  Expected in: flat namespace

unix.so comes from py27-gobject, so I forced it to rebuild with

sudo port uninstall py27-gobject

sudo port clean py27-gobject

sudo port install pyg27-gobject +quartz

which leads to a build failure.   The log file contains

:info:build   CC     _gio_la-gio.lo

:info:build unix.override:27:10: fatal error: 'gio/gdesktopappinfo.h' file not found

:info:build #include <gio/gdesktopappinfo.h>

    > Would mpkg have somehow pulled in the +quartz version?

    It sounds like maybe it did. How did you invoke sudo port mpkg -- what arguments? Did any of its output show that it deactivated your x11 version of glib2 and activated the quartz version?

I just ran "sudo port mpkg oof3d", without any other arguments.  I had changed my PATH so that only the minimal, non-standardly-located ports directory was visible.  (Minimal means only dependencies of oof3 are installed.)   I don’t remember any output showing that it switched glib2 versions, and only the x11 version is installed now.   I'll re-run mpkg to make sure, but I made the mistake of running upgrade outdated, and it's going to take forever.  Does it build everything from source because macports isn't installed in the standard location?
