I've never had trouble with my ports dependancies. Heck, one of the
things I do when installing on a new desktop machine is install the Gimp
port, since that will get the GTK libraries and a huge pile of graphics
libraries. Usually I install apsfilter too, even if there isn't a
attached to the system, simply because that get almost all of the common
text processing utilites.
