grustibus is a horribly old port which relies on an ancient version of xmame in order to work (version 0.37b4). Grustibus compiles fine, but cannot interact with the current xmame in ports (version 0.106) rendering it completely useless. With the latest xmame installed, you are told by grustibus that the version of xmame available is "out of date".
The developer(s) of grustibus seem to have abandoned the project back in mid 2001 (6 years ago now) so there's little chance of this port ever becoming useful, especially when there are other MAME GUI frontend ports that actually work. I suggest that the grustibus port be deleted.
Just try getting it to work with the latest xmame. You'll see what I mean.
Install version version 0.37b4 of xmame, which is VERY OLD.
