install xsnow from mac ports fails, as follows:

--->  Computing dependencies for xsnow
--->  Building xsnow
Error: Target returned: shell command failed
Log for xsnow is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_ports_x11_xsnow/main.log
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

the log (supported by an attempt to manually make) reveals the error in finding the library:

rm -f xsnow
/usr/bin/gcc-4.2 -o xsnow -Os -Wall -Wpointer-arith -no-cpp-precomp     -L/opt/local/lib   xsnow.o toon_root.o -lXext -lX11   -lm -lXpm   
ld: library not found for -lXext
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
