On my machine "port info ossp-uuid" says that default in 5.28 now, but
you might have installed it when 5.26 was still the default, so I'm
not quite sure what goes wrong here (does installing with 5.28 variant
By far the best bet would be to remove 5.26 from this port and all its
dependents (or all ports, for that matter).
We need some help finishing https://trac.macports.org/ticket/58361 (or
maybe even go straight to 5.30 :).
