The warnings are normal and nothing  to worry about.

Yeah,  Xboard looks for it’s resources in the standard unix directories and 
needs the "sudo make install" to set everything up correctly.  Idk if the 
installation script takes in to account the “prefix" parameter which would be 
needed for many macports installs?  (For the record, macports defaults to a 
prefix of /opt/local and any app needs to be installed in there)  Such 
directories really isn’t ideal for mass osx deployment which is why we went 
through the trouble of bundling xboard in an app bundle, (taking advantage of 
the quartz version of GTK2, the GTK2 mac integration library, and a few extra 
lines of code on our part)

Well even for the standard GTK2 on OSX, a working X11 server is important.
It sounds like you have a problem with your X11 server.  I assume you have 
Xquartz.app installed or at least the macports x11 server port?  I know 
Xquartz.app works fine, but I haven’t ever tried the x11 port.  Might need some 
extra configuration.. do other x11 based apps work?  Inkscape comes to mind.

I assume you will be making the port for the X11 version of GTK2?  That’s 
generally what other GTK based macports use, and is still the default gtk2 

If you need any help, let me know.  I believe a working up-to-date macports 
port, as another option besides the app bundle, is very desirable.

Best Regards,
