Just in case anyone else runs into this…
0.92 has MUCH better DXF importing than 0.91. However… for the mac there is no DMG for .92 so you have to compile it (which is not a big deal if you use something like MacPorts).
Here’s the rub… if you are like me and don’t update your GNU packages too often on MacPorts/your Mac when you go to do the install of inkscape you MAY run into a problem if you are on High Sierra (10.13.x). FFMPEG needs to be updated in order for all the other widgets to play nice. The problem is that the latest version of FFMPEG doesn’t want to compile with Xcode 8.x but it DOES compile with Xcode 9.x.
Why am I telling you this? If you are running Sierra (10.12.x) Update will tell you that you are out of date on Xcode. If you are running High Sierra and didn’t update Xcode to 9.x it won’t tell you that it’s out of date. No idea why. The remedy is simple: Go to the app store and install the new XCode.
Just figured I would try and save you guys an hour of trying to figure out why something won’t compile properly even thought it looks like everything is up to date on the host.
