Thanks for a very clear installation instruction. I am trying to do  
this in the correct order. I already had installed Macports and tried  
to install glib and libtool.
I first got this message when trying to uninstall:

Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: Another  
version of this port (glib2 @2.20.2_0) is already active.
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

So I uninstalled:
sh-3.2# sudo port uninstall glib2 libtool
--->  The following versions of glib2 are currently installed:
--->  	glib2 @2.20.2_0 (active)
--->  	glib2 @2.20.4_0
Error: port uninstall failed: Registry error: Please specify the full  
version as recorded in the port registry.

sh-3.2# sudo port uninstall glib2 @2.20.4_0  libtool
--->  Uninstalling glib2 @2.20.4_0
--->  Deactivating libtool @2.2.6a_0
--->  Uninstalling libtool @2.2.6a_0

sh-3.2# port clean glib2

But what am I doing wrong here since it fails now to install glib2 and  

sh-3.2# sudo port install glib2 libtool
--->  Fetching glib2
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for glib2
--->  Extracting glib2
--->  Applying patches to glib2
--->  Configuring glib2

--->  Configuring glib2 for architecture x86_64

Glad for any help!
