problems recompiling ports for Ventura

When trying to recompile my ports after upgrading to Ventura (as per the instructions in I ran into the following problems:

1) Installation of py310-jupyter failed with the following error message:

Error: Failed to activate py310-jupyter: Image error: /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.10/lib/python3.10/site-packages/__pycache__/jupyter.cpython-310.pyc is being used by the active py310-jupyter_core port.  Please deactivate this port first, or use 'port -f activate py310-jupyter' to force the activation.

For what it’s worth, the install command I executed was (using the requested.txt file created by the command "port echo requested | cut -d ' ' -f 1 | uniq > requested.txt”)

sudo port -dv install py-jupyter py-matplotlib py-nbconvert py-numpy py-requests py-scipy py-sympy py310-jupyter py310-pypdf2

which already contained the generic port py-jupyter. Also, I didn’t deactivate py310-jupyter_core, since I got a message warning me that several ports depending on it would break (although I guess that I could just deactivate it, activate py310-jupyter and then activate py310-jupyter_core, right?)

2) gnuplot failed to build due to its dependency Aquaterm, with the following error:

Command failed: cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_aqua_aquaterm/aquaterm/work/AquaTerm-1.1.1/aquaterm" && /usr/bin/xcodebuild -UseNewBuildSystem=NO  -target "AquaTerm" -configuration Default build   OBJROOT="/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_aqua_aquaterm/aquaterm/work/AquaTerm-AquaTerm-5c223a5/aquaterm/build/" SYMROOT="/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_macports_release_tarballs_ports_aqua_aquaterm/aquaterm/work/AquaTerm-AquaTerm-5c223a5/aquaterm/build/" MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET=13.0 ARCHS=arm64 SDKROOT="/Applications/Xcode" CLANG_CXX_LIBRARY="libc++" LOCAL_APPS_DIR=/Applications/MacPorts LOCAL_FRAMEWORKS_DIR=/opt/local/Library/Frameworks
Exit code: 65

Is this a known problem? Is there a known fix, or should I just wait for updated versions of this and other ports following the transition to Ventura?

Thanks a lot in advance,
