I personally spurned MacPorts for this reason (and others). I've had  
good success using the GTK+ Aqua framework from http://www.gtk- 
osx.org/ and manually compiling pkg-config and gtk2hs from the darcs  
repository. The only "trick" was to set PKG_CONFIG_PATH appropriately  
before running gtk2hs' configure script:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/Library/Frameworks/ 

Also had to --disable-gio to gtk2hs' configure.
