This is good to know. It *might* be the case that doing something like:

sudo env DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/gwTeX/lib port install dvipdfmx

would allow macports to find libkpathsea without installing tetex and
without doing all
the other steps I mentioned above. At least, that's my limited
understanding from looking
through the tcl code. Like I said, I haven't actually tried it....
