Thanks for reporting this problem. fox is built using libtool. libtool has a bug where it does not identify macOS 11 or later which causes builds to fail with undefined symbol errors. The developers of libtool need to accept the fix we submitted to them months ago and release a new version of libtool containing the fix. Then the developers of fox and every other program that builds using libtool need to update their development systems to the fixed version of libtool and release new versions of their software packaged with the fixed version of libtool. Then MacPorts needs to update to that fixed version of that software. Until that happens, we can apply a patch in MacPorts. Please report any other undefined symbol problems you see with other ports in separate tickets so that we can fix them too.
