Thanks a lot. I can again build master. Let me summarize for the record what I had to do, maybe you want to update the web page accordingly:

1) clean install macports (this might be redundant)
2) sudo port install gtk2 +no_x11 +quartz -x11 libusb gtk-osx-application automake autoconf libtool (as desscribed on the subsurface web page) 
3) as this fails, sudo port install py27-pygtk +quartz
4) again 2) (maybe redundant) 
5) apply the patch (cd /opt/local/var/macports/sources/ 
$ sudo patch -p0 < gtk-osx-application-2.0.1.patch
$ sudo port install gtk-osx-application )
6) make
