That's going to prove interesting for those of us using MacTeX: its
copy of gs-X11 seems to request and require libraries in /opt/X11 at
runtime, not just at setup.  (In our setups, /usr/local/bin comes
before /opt/local/bin, for reasons I can be tedious about on request,
so MacTeX's gs preempts MacPorts's.)
