Yes.  For a long time there wasn't a 64-bit GHC at all, and it still throws
a number of warnings and occasional other fits (especially on Lion where
Apple changed the linker yet again, but you're on SL so that at least
shouldn't matter).  Also, the HP stuff doesn't play along with MacPorts
very well, and MacPorts' own HP is even older than Debian stable.

Looks like your best bet is to temporarily move /opt/local out of the way
and then follow the directions at
http://live.gnome.org/GTK%2B/OSX/Building#Prerequisites to build native
Gtk+ libraries.
