Zenity is a Gnome application so if built with webkitgtk (e.g., on libc++ systems) depends on jack via webkit2-gtk and gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good:

$ port dependents jack gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good webkit2-gtk
gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good depends on jack
webkit2-gtk depends on gstreamer1-gst-plugins-good
yelp depends on webkit2-gtk
zenity depends on webkit2-gtk

Zenity can be built (e.g., "works for me") without webkitgtk via a configure option which currently is set to --disable-webkitgtk but gets changed to --enable-webkitgtk on libc++ systems. I suppose there could be a -webkitgtk variant, but then you need to deal with +webkitgtk on non libc++ systemt -- seems a bit complex for the variants mechanism in macports.

Thanks, I realised that now zenity needs webkit2-gtk (with a lot of extra packages). And it's only needed by metacity. So the best solution is to remove these two.

Case closed (for me).
