Install and activate xdebug in MacPorts

First install php5-xdebug:

sudo port install php5-xdebug

Then just add these in your php.ini (probably /opt/local/etc/php5/php.ini), but first verify the file path for zend_extension option:

; NOTE: This line adds the xdebug extension. The macports install will give you the path, 
; or may even add this automatically. Be smart, look for a similar line in your config first.
; (Edit: 06/22/2012)
zend_extension="/opt/local/lib/php/extensions/no-debug-non-zts-20090626/xdebug.so"

; General config
;Dumps local variables on exception
xdebug.show_local_vars=On
;Dump server variables
xdebug.dump.SERVER=*
;Dump global variables
xdebug.dump_globals=On
xdebug.collect_params=4;

; Tracing
xdebug.auto_trace=On
xdebug.trace_output_dir=/opt/local/php_traces/
xdebug.show_mem_delta=On
xdebug.collect_return=On

; Profiler
xdebug.profiler_enable=1
xdebug.profiler_output_dir=/opt/local/php_traces

; Debugging. You might need to specify your host with some additional options
xdebug.remote_enable=1
