On my 10.6.4 machine, I had to install the following to get things to build:
libiconv 1.13.1 - I was having some issues with the base one not be recognized as GNU
libxml2 2.7.7 - Not sure why configure didn't find the base one (maybe because it's in Framework which is mac only)
I wouldn't worry too much about the "gcp" issue.
On a side note, I now hate MacPorts. I'm using a MacPro and installing -i386 fails on about half of the above installs. -x86_64 fails on about half (and if you don't include it, this is the default). The +universal option again fails on about half of them.
I ended up just downloading the base .tar.gz files and building them all from scratch. Most of them allow you to just set the compiler flags to "-arch i386 -arch x86_64" to automatically build fat versions. Two of them required building one -arch, doing the install, and the building the 2nd -arch, and then manually create the fat version.
