    Wasn't too sure where to put this, this seemed like the most appropriate place.

    Self-updated and all that, and yet it still yells this at me:

    I recently started using XQuartz, could this be the problem?

    Looks like it's trying to build KDE?

    :error:build Target org.macports.build returned: shell command failed (see log for details)

    what does the log say?

    Thats the truncated log when the error began. I did not want to post a big wall'o'text. It bores people out.

    For those who want to see the full log: http://pastebin.com/jQb3sMku

    And yes, I am trying to install the KDE3 port. Why KDE3? For the fun of it

    Look towards the end of the log:
    info:build checking X paths... failed
    :info:build configure: error: /opt/local/bin/xmkmf (imake) failed.
    :info:build Make sure you have all necessary X development packages installed.
    :info:build On some systems a missing /lib/cpp symlink is at fault.


    That's your problem. Either make sure you have the X packages installed, and if you do, make sure your system knows where to find them

    I have the X devel packages installed, but I do not know how to create a symlink

    From a Terminal:
    ln -s source target
