A screenshot doesn't help very much. Please attach the main.log file mentioned in the error message.

True, however according to the port health indicators the buildbot also failed to build this port on all macOS versions; hopefully that means it should be easy for us to reproduce the issue.

Here are my logs.

main.log says:

and install it before trying again. If libbswabe is already
installed in a non-standard location, try again with

If you already specified those arguments, double check that bswabe.h
can be found in the first path and libbswabe.a can be found in the

configure:4586: result: not found

Adding the --with-bswabe-include=<path> and --with-bswabe-lib=<path> flags does not help because the problem is not an inability to locate the library or headers; the problem is that the library that was found appears to be missing something essential.

I appear to have caused this in [ad587304cb98daa6850bace3d2809f0cfe8fa380/macports-ports] when I resolved #28925 by adding a dynamic libbswabe library. If I revert that, cpabe configures successfully and finds the static libbswabe library. So either the dynamic library needs something added to it or else the test for the library in cpabe needs to be adjusted.
