Please note that it is one OR the other.  It is quite possible to get different versions of a dependency installed by each of MacPorts and Homebrew.  Build scripts can sometimes be remarkably dumb and find headers in one place but link to binaries in another.  If this leads to a build or run failure, it pretty much guarantees that a painful experience.
