What exactly is the difference between the basic port and the -devel 
subport? Should I be trying to install the kf5-okular-devel subport 
rather than just kf5-okular?

OK so while installing gtk3 (I have no idea why it tries to install 
gtk3!) I see:

> :info:configure configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.45.8    atk >= 2.15.1    pango >= 1.37.3    cairo >= 1.14.0    cairo-gobject >= 1.14.0    gdk-pixbuf-2.0 >= 2.30.0) were not met:

How does this work? Is not version @1.40.0 clearly more recent than 
@1.36.8_1? And as for transparently ignoring an explicit request to 
install a particular version, I don't know what to make of it. Surely at 
least a warning that for whatever reason it cannot install the version I 
requested is called for?

I have no idea. I didn't it to build okular for either Linux or Windows 
so it's not clear why it should be needed under OSX. Does this help you 
at all:

I have no such file, but I do find a file

Sorry to be such a noob but don't know how to determine this. I can 
confirm with 'port info' that I have installed version 0.5.1 but other 
than that I can't see how to check whether it comes from your port tree 
or another source.

Many thanks as always.
