I haven't used MacPorts much.. I basically started using it to get all the libraries I needed for gst..

Does it lock certain versions of libraries etc to OS versions?
Is it possible there is an issue with a version of a MacPorts library that gst uses?

Hi, I changed the status to active because I still see this bug on OS X.

MacPorts gives an error message if you try to install GNU Smalltalk via the port package manager, saying it's unavailable for Intel Macs, which
in 2009 means most Macs, but in fact mine's Intel and it's running
fine. At least, it handles "Hello world!" and the interactive console.

Giles, I installed gst via MacPorts w/o an error message and have run both
that version and ones from built from source without issue. I'm using

I just ran in less than 10 seconds with both the MacPorts
and my built from source version.

Are you on something earlier than 10.5.6?
