Using the fallback 'C' locale.

dbus[15521]: Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not
provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is

My OS: Mac Catalina

$ sw_vers

ProductName:       Mac OS X

ProductVersion: 10.15.7

BuildVersion:   19H524

$ port -q info --category --name --version meld
textproc, devel
