I am still trying, but I have learned a few things … ;-)

No, I think I have been jumping at shadows and klutzing around … :-)

It is possible that some meinproc4 crashes in the past have been
due to getting incompatible libxslt and libxml2 from /usr/ and
/opt/local/ respectively, but, in one old MacPorts log I looked at,
the build was getting both from /opt/local/.
