(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 I'll re-run mpkg to make sure, but I made the mistake of running upgrade outdated, and it's going to take forever.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?
Yes, not using the standard /opt/local prefix would disable the use of precompiled binaries and would require building everything from source.
