Actually, from your error below it is not transcode that is busted, but
your libXaw.

You are missing a shared library.  It should have picked up,
not libXaw.a.  You should reinstall the port that has libXaw - for me, I
use xorg-libraries-6.8.2.  The file(s) should
be /usr/X11R6/lib/*.  Check that they exist and have proper

This is an error indicating that you are mixing PIC and non-PIC code
together.  Everything that goes into a shared library for amd64 needs to
be compiled -fPIC, but libXaw.a is not built that way.
