Yes, that was my first thought.

But as long as frescobaldi can only be installed by macports, it is not so 
inconvenient that it is also the case for lilypond Apple ARM.

I would just find it useful to indicate on the website of lilypond, that for 
macOS, the Apple ARM version must be installed by macport (or homebrew) and 
that its access path is /opt/local/bin/lilypond.

And when frescobaldi will be available again in dmg, I could then gladly 
compile lilypond on my mac ARM.
