I installed Gtk2Hs on a similar machine earlier tonight, with much
success, even with Yi.
I did not use MacPorts, and instead followed the instructions on the
HaskellWiki  under "Using the GTK+ OS X Framework" (including
compiling pkg-config from src). I'm not sure how having attempted the
installation through MacPorts may have littered your system,
After that installation has succeeded, compiling Yi normally and running
`yi -fpango` to launch the GTK UI should work. Earlier tonight, though,
I reported an issue that causes only the first line of any buffer in the
Pango Yi UI to be visible , which makes this much less useful.
