Thanks for the port.

I've tested this port[1] on my 5.1p10 system, putting the port in x11/. It
builds and installs cleanly. I installed the "Smooth-Step" theme[2] and
tested GTK+ 2.x with gtk2-theme-switch[3] and it appeared to work fine.
I've not tested the GTK+ 1.x.

Running the latest portlint on the port provides only one remark about
using "USE_LIBTOOL".

It appears that the project admin, Andrew Johnson (aj_genius)[4], for this
app thinks it should not be installed in a GTK+ 1.x/2.x version-specific
directory[5], as it appears to be - /usr/X11R6/lib/gtk-2.0/2.2.0/engines.
I'm insufficiently familiar with GTK and Gnome hierarchy issues to offer
any insight, so this is FYI only.

When this is committed, it should probably be added to the GTK+ engines
meta-port, x11-toolkits/gtk-engines-collection.

[3] Port x11/gtk2-theme-switch
