You *do* understand that ports are recipes for how to build things on 
specific platforms?  They "fix" problems with vendor scripts.  It's rare 
that a vendor build file works out of the box without modification.

in a way, ports are a knowledge repository for all these tricks.

You should not be surprised when building yourself results in failure. 
It's very easy to skip requirements or not have valuable fixes.  It's 
almost naive to expect these to work.

If you really care about the answer to your question then study the port 
and see what it's doing differently than you, and then you'll understand 
the root problem.
