It is a known issue, since there are changesets related explaining the problem and even suggesting a (dangerous) workaround. See r79720

I didn't found any tickets on trac related to "track" this one. So here is this ticket.

NO!

I fixed this in 10.6.2. The correct fix is to have libnotify require 10.6.2

This fix yields a new issue:

--->  Dependencies to be installed: libnotify
Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: can't read "os.minor": no such variable
Error: Failed to install libnotify

Sorry for this obviously off-topic comment, but a question came to my mind and I'm pretty sure someone from there will be able to answer, and I have no idea where else I should ask.

Is libnotify useless on OSX?

AFAIK it is a dbus pop-up notification library on Linux, but I doubt there is some magical bridge to Growl in it... (or else) So except to satisfy a package dependency, my guess is this package is useless, and maybe should be removed from any port capable of ignoring it? (like it was removed on deluge few days ago after my request...)

Sorry, I committed before testing it because I didn't want the version that was there to infect too many systems. I fixed it. I can't believe we don't have os.minor ... =/
