I think something must still have been built against gtk x11.

Did you rebuild all of Gtk2Hs after rebuilding Gtk?
cabal install --reinstall glib
cabal install --reinstall gio
cabal install --reinstall cairo
cabal install --reinstall pango
cabal install --reinstall gtk
cabal install --reinstall gtksourceview

If that does not fix it, you could try this to find the package at fault.
grep gtk-x11 ~/.ghc/i386-darwin-6.12.1/package.conf.d/*

I am interested to see how you get on with MacPorts.  I have not tried it myself in a while.  I built the current Leksah OS X binary with jhbuild...

I am sorry that the current binary is not compatible with OS X 10.5.  I will try to use OS X 10.5 to build the next release to make sure it is compatible.

Once you have Leksah working you will probably need to update the keymap file (~/.cabal/share/leksah- if you want Command-C, V and X to work.  Just uncomment the three lines already in there...
<ctrl>x     ->          EditCut
<ctrl>c     ->          EditCopy
<ctrl>v     ->          EditPaste
You will probably find it beeps each time you use them.  I have a nice fix for that but I think it requires a newer version of ige-mac-integration than the one in MacPorts.

Good Luck,
