I forgot to say that this MacPorts one is dvisvgm 2.1.3

Why don't I use it ? I will probably, but as I had a very
nice experience with ./Build, I insist on making my life
miserable and for this trying to get the dvisvgm 2.3.3 knowing where to find
libgs.dylib of my dreams seems a good way.

Also, I have a set-up where I solved all issues during 2017/2018 about
using MacPorts binaries inside a pure TeXLive2017 install, in a way
compatible with the TeXDist Control Panel facilities,
and I am trying not to mix the two sets of binaries. I can now either
work with TeXLive provided, or my "self"-compiled, or the MacPorts binaries
and I try not to mix them.
