It is not a requirement to have no ports installed. But the build only
works if none of that stuff gets pulled into the build.

Then provide patches to make sure that the "dirty" stuff from
macports/fink/... doesn't get pulled in.

If you followed the lists in the last weeks, you'll see that this is
what has been done. Prevent the impact of the external stuff by
changing the configure of the external modules.
