sorry, that was just an oversight (buffered mailing addressess...).

I upgraded to Xcode 11 prior to taking note of the macports caveat. I've therefore downgraded as
recommended (i.e. downloaded/installed "Command_Line_Tools_macOS_10.14_for_Xcode_10.3.dmg") but did
not do so for the full Xcode 10 toolbox (trusting this is not required?).
to Xcode 10. This is just general advice for Mojave users, and probably does not relate to this
problem you're experiencing now.
so the problem persists (rxvt-unicode being the _only_ package which choked during the `port upgrade
outdated' run) on two machines. in the meantime I did the update on a third one with supposedly
basically identical setup (OS version, /opt/local content etc.) where I did *not* have the described
any idea where should I look now?
