7Release 1.8.0 (unreleased):
8    - port lint recognizes new top-level category php (#19329, ryandesign)
9
10    - Do not print header lines when the quiet option -q is set
11    (r48558, raimue)
12
13    - svn.tag is deprecated, use svn.revision instead (r48222-48223, raimue)
14
15    - port -i option has been removed (r48218, blb)
16
17    - ui_warn logs to stderr instead of stdout (r48217, raimue)
18
19    - Remove --pretend option for port selfupdate, use global dry-run option
20      instead (r48125, raimue)
21
22    - port(1) option -y for dry-run (#11892, gwhitney)
23
24    - New pseudo-port 'obsolete' to identify ports which are installed but no
25      longer in the PortIndex (r47253, raimue)
26
27    - MacPorts now performs fetch, extract, patch, configure and build in a
28      user rather than system owned location. By default, this is
29      ~/.macports/opt. This allows MacPorts to do all but the install of the
30      port without root privileges. (gsoc08-privileges)
31
32    - MacPorts now automatically drops privileges whenever possible so as to
33      avoid running as root whenever possible. (gsoc08-privileges)
34
35    - MacPorts will prompt for the root password if you attempt to install a
36      port into the /opt/local hierarchy and did not start MacPorts with sudo.
37      It will not do so however until the install stage. The fetch, extract,
38      patch, configure and build will proceed first under the privileges
39      MacPorts is started with. (gsoc08-privileges)
40
41    - The Portfile format has a number of new boolean attributes to indicate
42      when an action should or should not be run with root privileges:
43      'patch.asroot', 'build.asroot', 'configure.asroot', 'destroot.asroot',
44      and 'install.asroot'. The default for all is "no". If the prefix folder
45      (by default /opt/local) is not writable, MacPorts will attempt to
46      elevate privileges to root for the install phase. (gsoc08-privileges)
47
48    - A "make group" command has been added to the Makefile and a
49      "--with-shared-directory" switch to the configure script. Running "make
50      group" will create a macports group. "--with-shared-directory" will let
51      let the group specified by "--with-install-group" have full read write
52      access to the /opt/local hierarchy. This will allow users who are
53      members of the new macports group to have full write permissions to
54      /opt/local and its subfolders, and hence to install ports which only
55      affect that hierarchy without requiring root privileges.
56      (gsoc08-privileges)
57
58    - A switch called "--with-no-root-privileges" has been added for use by
59      user installing MacPorts for their own use only. An example configure
60      command would be "./configure
61      --prefix=/Users/{your-user-name-here}/.macports/opt
62      --with-no-root-privileges" (gsoc08-privileges)
63
64    - Add several new options to port search, looks in name and description by
65      default (#15434, raimue)
66
67    - Add xpkg package type, xar-based format with XML. (afb)
68
69    - Split portpkg creation out from portsubmit phase. (afb)
70
71    - Make dependencies displayed in port info respect variants
72      specified in variants.conf; collapse port deps to be an alias
73      for port info with appropriate flags. Note this changes output
74      format of port deps somewhat.  (#11891, gwhitney)
75
76    - Make dependencies in port upgrade respect variants as specified
77      (in order of precedence) on command line, latest installed
78      version, or variants.conf .  (#8221, gwhitney)
79
80    - Add select action, which integrates *_select tools into port.
81      (#17477, perry)
82
83    - The variants action additionally shows default variants, conflicting
84      variants and variants' dependencies. (#14178, #15628, perry)
85
86    - Implicit variants (e.g., darwin) can no longer be explicitly
87      set/unset. (#12563, perry)
88
89Release 1.7.1 (2009-03-28 by raimue):
90    - Fix freshmeat-based livecheck (#18887)
91
92    - Fix issue on direct-mode installs where checking for installed ports
93      wasn't properly looking (it only matched for revision 0 and no
94      variants) (#17762)
95
96    - Add new "use_7z yes" port option to allow distfiles in 7z format
97      (#18521, ryandesign)
98
99    - port lint no longer requires variable master_sites if the port has no
100      distfiles (#18479, ryandesign)
101
102    - Upgrade will no longer accept ports that are not installed (but it still
103      installs new ports as dependencies if needed). In particular, this means
104      that "port upgrade all" will no longer proceed to install every
105      available port. (jmr in r46052)
106
107    - Add mkdtemp Tcl command to create temporary directories. (#17181, perry)
108
109    - Add 'apple-gcc-4.2' option to configure.compiler (#18426, ryandesign)
110
111    - Create ${applications_dir} and ${frameworks_dir} in destroot
112      automatically (r45614, raimue)
113
114    - Make the postflight procedure a bit smarter about which login files
115      to update for bash and tcsh (#17588)
116
117    - Add error messages to package installers when the wrong OS package
118      is being installed (#13141)
119
120Release 1.7.0 (2008-12-13 by blb):
121    - Global variant descriptions using variant_descriptions.conf in the new
122      resources directory in the ports tree (#14482, raimue)
123
124    - Move port resources into the ports tree (#14553, raimue and blb)
125
126    - Improve error message when "upgrade outdated" is used (#12288)
127
128    - Properly handle ports whose version evaluates to 0 (#16740, ryandesign)
129
130    - PortIndex is now regenerated atomically (#16234, blb & ryandesign)
131
132    - Improve upon 'port lint' usage by not being too overbearing unless
133      --nitpick is used (#14799)
134
135    - Fix reinplace when the filename contains spaces (#17098, ryandesign)
136
137    - Fix python port group issues (#15226)
138
139    - Make sure global variants (from variants.conf) are applied to all
140      phases (#11897)
141
142    - Allow configuring --without-objc-runtime --without-objc-foundation,
143      for building on platforms without Foundation like +puredarwin (r41015)
144
145    - Changes in loading of configuration files. Currently the global
146      configuration file is loaded first, then user defined one (if present),
147      PORTSRC environment variable is loaded last. Last defined value is used
148      for each configuration option. (#16329, contributed by Adam Byrtek)
149
150    - Ruby port group now accepts a new (optional) last parameter for the
151      ruby.setup command, "implementation". It is "ruby" by default, and
152      can be set to "ruby19". It names the ruby-implementing port, and can
153      possibly support still other rubys in the future. (#15912, febeling
154      in r38683)
155
156    - Don't use build.nice for complex build.cmd commands (#16091)
157
158    - The buildmakejobs setting now also affects ports using the scons build
159      system, so now scons-based ports can be built in parallel too. Previously
160      only automake-based ports were supported. (ryandesign in r38556)
161
162    - User-supplied port names are now treated in a fully case-insensitive
163      manner. This fixes a bug where giving the name with incorrect case when
164      deactivating/uninstalling would cause all the port's files to be left
165      behind. (#11759, jmr/raimue in r37349, r37621)
166
167    - The non-verbose output for the build phase no longer shows what target
168      was used. This makes the build phase consistent with the other phases
169      which also do not show details. If details are desired, the debug or
170      verbose switches should be used. (#15881, raimue/ryandesign in r38315)
171
172    - Make missing sed extended regexp (for reinplace -E) into a runtime error.
173      (#15577, afb in r37501)
174
175    - More helpful strings for 'port help' (needs more work #15467, raimue)
176
177    - Command line options are checked if the command accepts it before
178      running (raimue)
179
180    - We now have a mirror of (almost) all distfiles at distfiles.macports.org,
181      and it is automatically appended to master_sites and patch_sites (#15456,
182      jmr in r37217, r37255)
183
184    - port search looks now in name, description and long_description for the
185      search pattern and prints the list sorted (#15434, raimue in r37119,
186      r37121)
187
188    - Stopped 'port -R upgrade' from processing more ports than it should, and
189      from processing ports multiple times. (#10827, jmr in r37046)
190
191    - Don't include build.nice and build.jobs in destroot.cmd (#15295)
192
193    - The default universal variant is no longer added when we know it won't
194      work. (#12170, jmr in r36764)
195
196    - During upgrade, if the latest installed version of a port is not active,
197      the currently active version (if any) is now deactivated before trying
198      to activate the latest version. (#12013, jmr in r36762)
199
200    - A port with dependents can now be removed without forcing iff it is
201      inactive and there is at least one other version of the same port
202      installed (#11501, jmr in r36747)
203
204    - Duplicate entries can no longer build up in the dependency map (#8763,
205      jmr in r36745)
206
207    - In image mode, dependencies are no longer treated as being satisfied
208      when the satisfying port is not active (#7361, jmr in r36735)
209
210    - Fixed a bug where upgrade could create too many nested subdirectories
211      in distpath, archive.destpath and unarchive.srcpath (#11971, jmr in
212      r36679, r36687, r36688)
213
214    - Declaring a dependency on a nonexistent port now always causes an error
215      (#10768, jmr in r36648)
216
217    - Explicitly use unsetenv(3) on all environment variables (#13930, #16010,
218      #16233)
219
220    - Make the included tclthread compile on Leopard if configured (#13495)
221
222    - Allow distfiles to be disk images with "use_dmg yes" port option (#13509,
223      ryandesign in r36708)
224
225    - ruby.setup now takes a type 'fetch' to just fetch/extract (eridius in r35773)
226
227    - Fetch now prefers mirrors with lower ping times (#14891, jmr in r35748,
228      r35806, r35808)
229
230    - Fetching of daily snapshot tarballs of the ports tree as an alternative to rsync
231      (raimue in r35647, r35648)
232
233    - port uninstall now takes --follow-dependents to uninstall all dependents
234      (#14637, eridius/raimue in r34977, r35042, r36160)
235
236    - New fetch.type git (#14232, eridius in r34875)
237
238    - fixed "port mdmg" getting block size wrong for the disk image (#13968, afb in r34844)
239
240    - always set MACOSX_DEPLOYMENT_TARGET, to avoid bugs with older glibtool (afb in r34541)
241
242    - port lint now checks all dependencies so that the ports actually exist (#14380)
243
244    - added target_state to avoid the need for privileges for lint/livecheck (#13458)
245
246    - Overhauled output for port info/deps/dependents/search (raimue in
247      r34354, r34371, r34391, r34395, r34402, r34420)
248
249    - Revert the default +universal MDT/SDK to 10.4/10.4u on Tiger and 10.5/10.5 on Leopard
250
251    - port lint shouldn't require variable master_sites for fetch.type != standard (#14377)
252
253    - Add "tcldoc" documentation comments and "tcldox" Doxyfile for doxygen (#12048)
254
255    - Add --pretend and --nosync flags to selfupdate (raimue in r33938, r33939,
256      r33940, r33941)
257
258    - Work around autoconf X11 detection bugs on darwin (afb in r33717)
259
260    - Fix bugs with X11 lib detection on Leopard (#14089, afb in r33716)
261
262    - Add configure.{optflags,m32,m64,march,mtune} (afb in r33503, r33599)
263
264    - Add applications_dir and frameworks_dir configuration (r33499, r33722)
265
266    - Remove some hardcoded paths (such as /usr/X11R6, /usr/bin/install) (afb in r33501, r33619, r33620)
267
268    - Add configure.{universal_target,universal_sysroot,universal_archs} (afb in r33478).
269
270    - Change default +universal platform back to: 10.4/10.4u.sdk/i386 ppc (r33087, r33107).
271
272    - Add `port platform` info target that outputs current platform (#12302, afb in r32724).
273
274    - Enable 64 bit environment, ppc64 x86_64, for all +universal builds (mww in r32194).
275
276    - Add 'merge' function for merging multiple (single arch) destroots into one (universal)
277      destroot (mww in r31954).
278
279    - If checksum is mismatched, and in verbose mode, present a corrected pre-fabricated checksum statement
280      to make it easy to update a port (jberry in r32441).
281
282    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_prefix"" runtime error on Panther
283      (eridius in r32525).
284
285    - Fixed the "Error: Unable to open port: invalid command name "ui_channels"" runtime error on Panther
286      (eridius in r32514).
287
288    - "port lint" now recognizes non-canonical modelines (afb in r32480).
289
290    - "configure.pipe" is now hackable from Portfiles (afb in r32430).
291
292    - MacPorts no longer installs the "base/config/mp_version" file, as the release version is now stored
293      internally in $macports::autoconf::macports_version (jmpp in r32353).
294
295    - Bail out with a suitable message if the requested port is not installed when polling its dependents
296      (jmpp in r32336).
297
298    - Fixed a Panther build failure due to missing sqlite headers (jmpp in r32212).
299
300    - Fixed a build failure by passing the base/src/cregistry/cregistry.a archive through ranlib (jmpp in r32105).
301
302
303Release 1.6.0 (16-December-2007 by jmpp):
304
305    - Revamped the postflight script that is run by Installer.app with our pkg installer to gracefully
306      handle the addition of PATH, MANPATH and DISPLAY environment variables separately, if needed.
307      Read http://guide.macports.org/#installing.binary.postflight.details for more information
308      (jmpp in many commits directly on the release_1_6 branch).
309
310    - Remove LD_PREBIND & LD_PREBIND_ALLOW_OVERLAP variables from MacPorts' environment to prevent
311      prebinding of binaries, which can be harmful on Tiger and above (#13436, mww in r31786).
312
313    - Add 'gcc-4.2' option to the configure.compiler Portfile command (mww in r31891).
314
315    - Flush port(1) output channel after issuing prompt, when readline is not
316      available, to ensure prompt is displayed at proper time. (jberry r31338).
317
318    - readline is now disabled by default, in order to avoid support issues.
319      use --enable-readine parameter to configure to enable support for readine.
320      (jberry r31139, r31140).
321
322    - daemondo now monitors kevents for the death of the daemon process, which means that it
323      now detects the death of processes (even those that aren't direct child processes)
324      much more reliably. Plus other daemondo logging and doc cleanups.
325      (jberry in r30313,r30332,r30333,r30334,r30335,r30364).
326
327    - dramatic speedup to file, dir, url, work actions (jberry in r31056)
328
329    - add option "extract.mkdir [no|yes]" for distfiles that would pollute ${workpath} with
330      multiple files (mww in r31028)
331
332    - add optional configure.pipe output (afb in r29604 & r30824)
333
334    - add "startupitem_type none" macports.conf configuration option (#12743, afb in r30823)
335
336    - add configure.[awk|bison|pkg_config|pkg_config_path] (r30761)

341
342    - New SourceForge.jp mirrors list (r30484).
343
344    - Display warnings when using old versions of Mac OS X and Xcode Tools
345      (#12794, afb in r30338 & r30477)
346
347    - Remove configure.macosx_deployment_target, add global macosx_deployment_target
348      (eridius in r30396).
349
350    - add support for LZMA compression, for making .tlz archives (afb in r30307)
351
352    - add configure.[perl|python|ruby] for interpreters, .install for avoiding breakage
353      due to coreutils, .libs
354
355    - added startupitem.netchange boolean flag (#12931, N_Ox in r30086).
356
357    - added generic GNU livecheck (N_Ox in r29812).
358
359    - fixed bug where all .mpkg packages were missing their welcome page (afb in r29517)
360
361    - better defaults for implicit ui_channels behaviour (eridius in r29498).
362
363    - prevent creating PKG packages with /etc or /var or /tmp (#2102, afb in r29445)
364
365    - add optional configure.ccache and configure.distcc filters (#5390, afb in r29438)
366
367    - Explicitly sort fs-traverse so it behaves predictably on Linux systems
368      (#12622, eridius in r29412).
369
370    - add configure.objc/objcflags for Objective-C
371
372    - add optional build.nice (0) and build.jobs (1) modifiers (afb in r28634 & r28673)
373
374    - make tclobjc1.0 compile with GNUstep and NXConstantString class (afb in r28668)
375
376    - fix bsdmake/gnumake defaults for FreeBSD and Linux platforms (afb in r28660)
377
378    - port lint command, for Portfile verification (#463, afb in r28170)
379
380    - add configure.macosx_deployment_target for configure flags
381
382    - add configure.javac/classpath for Java
383
384    - add configure.fflags/fcflags/f90flags for Fortran flags
385
386    - Mark "python" group code as deprecated
387
388    - Add group code for Python 3.0
389
390    - Add more compiler suites for the 'configure.compiler' option
391
392    - `port variants` behaves like `port info` in that it parses the Portfile for up-to-date info.
393      `port variants` also supports the --index flag (eridius in r27919).
394
395    - Fix upgrade to properly handle installed versions beginning with letters (eridius in r27900).
396
397    - Chris Pickel's GSoC2007 work: registry2.0 & cregistry (mainly r27518 & r27520)
398
399    - Eugene Pimenov's GSoC2007 work: Trace lib on unix sockets (r26682).

402
403
404Release 1.5.2 (15-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5's r27896, by jmpp):
405
406    - Fix mtree checks which inaccurately complained about files in /Applications, /Library & /Developer;
407      mtree checks now also warn the user if a port indicates an intended violation and errors are
408      temporarily non-fatal (mww & eridius in r27709, r27710, r27719, r27720 & r27773).
409
410
411Release 1.5.1 (11-August-2007 at branches/release_1_5/base's r27646, by jmpp):
412
413    - Remove sed rules taking care of dp based comments in the macports.conf file from the upgrade target in base/Makefile.in,
414      they were causing problems for people with /opt/dports or similar prefixes (jmpp in r27618).
415
416    - Facelift to the PortIndex2MySQL.tcl script to make it selfcontained and work with the new macports1.0 api to
417      generate SQL statements with information extracted from Portfiles (jmpp in r27415).
418
419    - Always print the livecheck regex in debug mode, not only when it fails (ryandesign in r27379).
420
421    - Detect some mtree violations within ${prefix}. Test can be overriden by "destroot.violate_mtree yes" in a Portfile
422      (mww in r27199).
423
424    - Fix version comparison in MacPorts initialization to properly detect Tcl versions 8.4.7 and later (sfiera in r27127).
425
426    - Fix double de-escaping of livecheck.regex inadvertently introduced in r26041 (eridius in r27079).
427
428    - Added new Portfile options to the configure stage for selecting compiler(s) (mww in r27018, r27021, r27022 and r27053)
429
430    - New logic in the upgrade target to account for cases where the old and new versions consist of different
431      numbers of segments (sfiera in r26921).
432
433    - Remove dead OpenDarwin mirrors from our mirrors list (jmpp in r26903)
434
435    - New tests for violations of common directory structure (and option to override them for special cases)
436
437    - Added new variable ${os.major} that contains the Darwin major version (eridius r26693, ticket #12224).
438
439
440Release 1.5.0 (09-July-2007 tagged at r26818 by jmpp):
441
442    - Many documentation updates and improvements, mostly thanks to Maun Suang and Brian
443      Campbell who both started work on both improving our man pages and reviving the
444      long forgotten MacPorts official guide, now nightly regen'd on an automated basis
445      and hosted at a temporary location, http://geeklair.net/macports_guide/, all
446      thanks to Daniel J. Luke (dluke).
447
448    - Improve built-in "daemondo" program logging (jberry r26537 & r26569).
449
450    - rpm target now knows how to also build universal packages if requested (afb r26470).
451
452    - The "rpmpackage" target was renamed to "rpm", and a new target "srpm" added
453      that allows packaging a Portfile (and files/distfiles) up as a source package.
454      Upgraded RPM to version 4.4.9 and changed OpenDarwin/DarwinPorts to MacPorts.
455      The default build location is now ${prefix}/src/macports instead of ${prefix}/src/apple
456      (jmpp & afb in r26465, r26496, r26536, r26543).
457
458    - Fixed a potential crasher in the delete command (ticket #12149, eridius r26397).
459
460    - 'port delete --work' now removes $portbuiltpath instead of $workpath, effectively prunning
461      empty dirs that up until now were left behind in the build directory (jmpp r26394).
462
463    - gnustep portgroup for gnustep-make-2.0 (yves r26266).
464
465    - Adding backwards compatibility glue for clients of the public (darwin|mac)ports1.0 API
466      that use now deprecated procs naming (DarwinPorts namespace) (jmpp r26392).
467
468    - Merged the dp2mp-move branch into trunk to finally move away from all
469      DarwinPorts related strings and conventions both internally and externally,
470      implying big changes in MacPorts pathnames with respect to user visible stuff.
471      Read http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/wiki/MacPortsRenaming and
472      http://trac.macports.org/projects/macports/log/branches/dp2mp-move/base for
473      more full details and information (jmpp r26177).
474
475    - Fix livecheck to properly de-escape livecheck.url (eridius r26041).
476
477    - Add warning when it looks like PortIndex file is corrupt (eridius r26040).
478
479    - Make portindex use stderr for errors (eridius r26038, ticket #11585).
480
481    - Fix port variants calculation to properly account for negated variants and
482      to detect problems between required and negated variants
483      (ticket #11920, eridius r26036, patch by gwhitney).
484
485    - Add global methods lpush, lpop, lshift, and lunshift. Works similar to
486      lappend (in fact lpush is just lappend) and do what they sound like.
487      Also add ldindex. Works like lindex, but deletes the element from the list.
488      Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r26034).
489
490    - Add global methods try and throw. Implemented based on the specification
491      in TIP #89. Documented in portfile.7 (eridius r25979).
492
493    - Handle encodings properly now. All Portfiles and .conf files are assumed
494      to be utf-8, and reading them or calling portindex(1) should now work
495      the same on all locales (ticket #11978, eridius r25975).
496
497    - Add support for decoding of obscured maintainer addresses.
498      We support two types of obscured addresses in Portfile maintainers field:
499         (1) username ==> implies username@macports.org
500         (2) subdomain.tld:username ==> implies username@subdomain.tld
501      These are unobscured by port info, and by port submit during the submission process,
502      but are left obscured in the Portfile to avoid accidental disclosure.
503      (jberry r25795).
504
505    - Update port.1 to reflect what "port dependents" really does (markd r25787, ticket #11898).
506
507    - Distinguish a pseudo portname that evaluates to nothing from no arguments at all,
508      improving behavior of 'installed', 'active', 'list', and 'search' pseudo portnames.
509      (jberry in r25789, ticket #10674).
510
511    - Bugfix startup item generation so that launchd.plists are disabled
512      by default, as we claim they are in our documentation. (jberry r25785).
513
514    - Update adduser/addgroup to use dscl instead of niutil. Also add support
515      for realname key in addgroup (ticket #11012, eridius r25586).
516
517    - Make a correction to port(1)'s determination of whether or not a port has
518      been updated by making it compare ${version} and then ${revision} rather
519      than a single comparison of the compound ${version}_${revision}; the
520      latter reports 2.01_2 to be newer than 2.01.01a25_0 because, at the fifth
521      character, `_' comes after `.' in ASCII lexicographic order.
522      (boeyms in r25310)
523
524Release 1.4.42 (17-May-2007 tagged at r25296 by jberry):
525
526    - Fix reinplace, broken in 1.4.41 (eridius r25285).
527
528Release 1.4.41 (16-May-2007 tagged at r25266 by jberry):
529
530    - `port info` now supports new --index flag for using old behaviour (eridius r25256).
531
532    - `port info` now opens the Portfile and displays up-to-date information.
533      This allows information about variants to be displayed (eg. dependencies).
534      Also allow `port info` to default to current directory if no name is provided
535      (eridius r25255).
536
537    - Add -E flag to reinplace, does the same thing as in sed (eridius r25251).
538
539    - Add support for [nosync] flag in sources.conf to prevent a source from syncing
540      during a `port sync` or `port selfupdate` (eridius r25236).
541      Example: file:///Users/landonf/misc/MacPorts/dports [nosync]
542
543    - Updating a file: source via svn update during port sync now uses the uid/gid
544      of the owner of the working copy (eridius r25142).
545
546    - Make port(1) convert description and long_description from lists to
547      strings before printing to stdout; this enables the proper printing of
548      semi-colons, brackets and other characters by way of Tcl escape sequences.
549      The exceptions to this are the sequences for newline and carriage return
550      (these break the flatfile PortIndex format by introducing line breaks).
551      (boeyms r25110)
552
553    - Evaluate variants at dportopen instead of dportexec. This ensures that
554      the portfile represents the proper information if queried before targets
555      are executed. It also prevents variants from being executed twice if multiple
556      targets are executed separately on the portfile (ticket #11296, eridius r25033).
557
558    - Fix copy and move commands (eridius r25024).
559
560    - Passing multiple arguments to $option-delete now works as expected
561      (ticket #11929, eridius r25006).
562
563    - fs-traverse no longer follows symlinks specified on the root. This fixes
564      the incorrect behaviour of delete seen in #11862 (eridius r25003).
565
566    - Remove bundled xar. (jberry r24913).
567
568    - Tighten checking of port name in depspecs. neither + nor / is allowed.
569      (jberry r24929, r24934, r24940).
570
571    - Restore ability for portindex lines to contain carriage returns, allowing
572      fields such as descriptions to contain line breaks. Note that any portindex
573      containing such entries will not be readable by a recent version of macports.
574      (jberry r25146)
575
576    - Add support for descriptions on variants:
577         * The syntax follows the syntax for variant depends, etc.
578         * Descriptions for variants are entirely optional
579         * The change to the portindex format to allow variant descriptions
580           should be backwards compatible. Variant descriptions are stored,
581           keyed by the variant name, in a new portinfo array named "variant_desc".
582
583        Example:
584
585            variant myvariant description "This variant does this and that" {
586                configure.args-append   --do-this --do-that
587            }
588
589        (jberry r25147)
590
591    - Only look for, or create, ~/.macports user directory if the HOME environment
592      variable is defined. (jberry r25177)
593
594
595Release 1.4.40 (7-May-2007, tagged at r24909 by jberry):
596
597    - Note the bump in version naming. To leave ourselves lots of room in our versioning
598      scheme, we've jumped from 1.4.3 to 1.4.40. The floating point represenation as
599      reported by port version (1.440) will still be the same; we're just interpreting
600      it differently.
601
602    - variable tracing now works in a much better way and handles unsets properly.
603      Similarly, ${option}-delete now works better. Depends validation no longer
604      attempts to validate when the variable is unset. Additionally, the validation
605      now actually validates each depspec instead of simply finding a single spec
606      within the list that works (ticket #11868, eridius r24678).
607
608    - macports infrastructure now easier to use from scripts.
609      ui_prefix and ui_channels have default implementations, and
610      all arguments to dportinit are now optional (ticket #11837, eridius r24460).
611
612    - ln now accepts combined flags (ex. ln -sf foo bar) (eridius r24452)
613
614    - default_variants now handles multiple values correctly (ticket #11828, eridius r24450).
615
616    - ln uses new symlink command so it can create symlinks that point to
617      files that don't actually exist (eridius r24444).
618
619    - New bare-bones Pextlib command `symlink source target` (ticket #11840, eridius r24444).
620
621    - delete reimplemented using fs-traverse (eridius r24435).
622
623    - fs-traverse now uses the fts(3) family of functions instead of readdir/opendir.
624      This fixes a couple behavioral oddities, and makes deleting during traversal work on 10.3
625      (ticket #11839, eridius r24423).
626
627    - fs-traverse now takes a list of targets rather than a variable number of arguments
628      (ticket #11836, eridius r24410).
629
630    - Fixed a potential crasher in fs-traverse when showing error message
631      (ticket #11827, eridius r24396, thanks sfiera).
632
633    - Fixed a bug where livecheck failed on ports that do not define a homepage
634      (ticket #11818, pguyot r24319).
635
636    - Added the downloads section of our repo to the macports mirrors list (jmpp r24278).
637
638    - Fixed a bug with the archive mode introduced with r23238 change (1.4.1)
639      (pguyot r24273).
640
641    - Trace mode now take dependencies into account when executing the activate
642      phase. This fixes an unwanted warning when activating ports that depend
643      on teTeX (pguyot r24199).
644
645    - Support for mpwa submit through "port submit".
646      This work is in progress. (jberry)
647       - Expose autoconf XAR variable as portutil::autoconf::xar_path. (r24194).
648       - Start to build portpkg.xar and meta data, hijacking Kevin's
649         portsubmit.tcl. (r24195-24196).
650
651    - Revise error messages in port image activation to use syntax that
652      matches port(1). (jberry r24543, r24548).
653
654    - Create new interp variable prefix_frozen, which is available to port phases
655      even when the Portfile redefines prefix. (jberry r24848-r24849)
656
657    - Search for prefix-relative commands in prefix_frozen rather than prefix.
658      Affects port submit (xar) and port fetch (svn). (jberry r24849)
659
660    - Always create a ~/.macports user directory if it doesn't yet exist. (jberry r24831)
661
662    - Move port(1) readline history file to ~/.macports/history (jberry r24832, r24843)
663
664Release 1.4.3 (17-Apr-2007):
665
666    - Fix bug in launchd support, introduced in 1.4.2. Remove remnants of
667      launchd enable flag which caused reversion to systemstarter in 1.4.2.
668      (jberry r24151).
669
670    - add functions 'backup' and 'lipo' along with some description
671      to be used for lipo-based universal variants, tested with openssl.
672      These functions should be considered test only for the time being,
673      and should not yet be adopted widely by port authors.
674      (pipping r24148).
675
676Release 1.4.2 (16-Apr-2007):
677
678    - New logic for variants overload that basically yields to listing only
679      variant +universal on ports that redefine it (pguyot in 24100).
680
681    - Implement brand new fs-traverse command in Pextlib.
682      See portfile.7 for documentation (eridius in r24079, r24080, and r24112).
683
684    - Add per-user preferences in ~/.macports/user.conf. This will be used
685      for submitter information.
686      Simplify selection of ports.conf file:
687        - ~/.portsrc is no longer supported.
688        - Search order for ports.conf is now:
689            - PORTSRC
690            - ~/.macports/ports.conf
691            - ${prefix}/etc/ports.conf
692          Only the first file found will be parsed and used.
693       (jberry r24071, r24113, r24114)
694
695    - Improvements on livecheck: fixed a report bug, improved ruby group
696      default behavior (pguyot in r24026 and r24018)
697
698    - Remove xar from the build. xar doesn't build on panther due to
699      a libxml2 lib too old for xar requirements. We'll find another
700      way to deal with xar, perhaps by requiring users to install the
701      xar port when they need its services. (jberry r24107:r24108)
702
703    - Remove configure switch for building launchd support. (jberry r24107:r24108)
704
705    - Remove compatibility upgrade for conf files from
706      darwinports 1.1 to 1.2. (jberry r24106).
707
708Release 1.4.1 (14-Apr-2007):
709
710    - Add responsive, reasonably fast http mirrors to openbsd group
711      (pipping in r23343).
712
713    - Resolved ticket #11637: livecheck incorrectly assumed that
714      master_sites was set. (pguyot in r23329).
715
716    - Add xar 1.4 into the build of MacPorts base. xar is now installed
717      into /opt/local/, which will conflict with anybody who has the xar
718      port installed. (jberry in r23687).
719
720    - Add -I${prefix}/include -L${prefix}/lib to the default configure
721      flags (pguyot in r23246 and r23291).
722
723    - New options for configure flags (C|CPP|CXX|LD)FLAGS and logic to
724      handle that and backward compatibility (pguyot in r23098, r23125,
725      r23238, r23248 and r23249).
726
727    - "port sync" now updates svn repos too (eridius in r22784).
728
729    - Default +universal variant for configure-based ports (pguyot in
730      r22313).
731
732    - Fixed use of master_site in livecheck, added support for
733      code.google.com checks, made the up to date message info (instead of
734      debug) and improved debugging output with livecheck (eridius in
735      r23888, r23889, r23890, r23894; pguyot in 23660)
736
737    - Fixed a bug where running port test would not install dependencies
738      when required. (pguyot in r23700)
739
740    - New ruby portgroup option to specify the name of the module for
741      gem-based ports. (pguyot in 23659)
742
743    - New fetch option to ignore the SSL certificate when fetching from
744      a secure site (default is to not ignore it). (pguyot in r23242)
745
746    - Bugfix #11720. Fixes for variants.conf functionality. (jberry in
747      r23967)
748
749
750Release 1.4 (26-March-2007):
751
752    - New gnupg mirrors list and general cleanups to varios other lists (pipping in r22979 through r22982,
753      r22999, r23000 & r23037).
754
755    - Python 2.4 & Python 2.5 group code now offer a "python.include" variable (mww in r22914 & r22953).
756
757    - Resolved ticket #7563: The Pextlib curl command now sends a user agent, set to
758      "MacPorts libcurl/[libcurl version]" (eridius in r22771).
759
760    - Resolved ticket #11417: No longer touch the dep map file when opening it for reading (eridius in r22769).
761
762    - Archivemode now supports both tbz2 & tbz binary archives naming variations (jmpp in r22584).
763
764    - Add new alias 'registry_active' for registry::active so portfiles can check if another port is
765      installed and activated (eridius in r22304).
766
767    - Built-in 'find' command now always expects an expression as its first argument (jkh in r22048).
768
769    - with_docs variant of GNUStep PortGroup ports now installs the latex2html port by default (yves in r22014).
770
771    - Add new 'touch' & 'ln' portfile writing commands, their usage being similar to their BSD equivalents,
772      along with 'move' and 'copy' shorthands for TCL's "file rename/copy" calls (eridius in r22007).
773
774    - Fix a dangerous bug in parsing filenames with spaces in the 'delete' command, while reworking it
775      to no longer be a plain 'system "rm -rf <path>"' call (eridius in r22007).
776
777    - Checksum phase no longer deletes distfiles upon checksums mistmatch, eliminating "file not found"
778      errors when a second run is attempted, thus making the need for a "port clean --dist" call more
779      explicit before continuing (eridius in r21967).
780
781    - Stating an empty key value in a Portfile now correctly clears it, as expected (eridius in r21950 & r21951).
782
783    - Documentation updates to the ports.conf.5 and portfile.7 man pages (markd, jmpp and others I may
784      be forgetting, sorry 'bout that, in r21998, referencing tickets #4905, #6880 & #10840).
785
786    - /Applications/DarwinPorts --> /Applications/MacPorts migration in base for aqua ports
787      (rhwood in r21852 and r21853, but other commits to this effect were also applied to trunk/dports)
788
789    - New SourceForge mirrors redirector and a few fallback geographically distributed hardcoded ones
790      to prevent disaster from happening, as suggested by Ross Turk (jkh in r21143 & jmpp in r21768).
791
792    - GNUStep PortGroup improvements and full documentation in portgroup.7 (yves in r21764).
793
794    - Xcode GroupCode improvements to ensure builds always take place inside the work dir (eridius in r21762).
795
796    - New 'macports' mirrors list, with entries pointing to svn's /distfiles/<user> &
797      /distfiles/general directories in our repo (eridius & jmpp in r21621).
798
799    - Iterate in darwinports_fastload using glob instead of hardcoding the library names (eridius in r21585).
800
801    - New Python 2.5 GroupCode (mww in r21451).
802
803    - Set upgrade.target back to archive (from unarchive) (dluke in r21110).
804
805    - rubyforge_gem fetch method for the Ruby PortGroup & livecheck support
806      (pguyot in r20544 & r20834, respectively).
807
808    - Resolved ticket #10843 (and probably #8229): initialize the portinfo array each time to improve
809      'port deps' and 'port variats' output (jberry in r19992).
810
811    - Resolved ticket #10766: improve error when no current port is available (jberry in r19665).
812
813    - Resolved ticket #8723: better messages for port outdated (jberry in r19664).
814
815
816Release 1.3.2 (9-Aug-2006):
817
818    - Fixed a bug that prevented operation of port ed with some editors.
819      The env wasn't being properly restored for the editor. (jberry)
820
821    - Fixed a bug in the creation of the portf symlink. (jmpp)
822
823    - Fixed a bug where port upgrade -uf fails because of the dirty upgrade
824      code. (pguyot)
825
826    - Port no longer warns when a shared distfile directory is emptied by a
827      clean --dist or clean --all, it now prunes the directory instead. (pguyot)
828
829    - Gem method of ruby portgroup now destroots from the worksrcdir, thus
830      avoiding an unnecessary warning with -t. (pguyot)
831
832    - Tell ld to look into /usr/local/lib when building port. This solves a
833      problem occurring when a newer version of readline is installed in
834      /usr/local. (pguyot)
835
836    - Added gnustep portgroup support. (Bugzilla #8139) (yves)
837
838    - Avoid sending Pragma: no cache when fetching files. (Bugzilla #8669)
839      (josh_root, blb)
840
841    - Changed Makefile logic to reconfigure/regenerate files when templates
842      are modified. (pguyot)
843
844    - Trace now forbids renaming files and directories as well as removing
845      directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
846
847    - Allow additional inserted libraries by keeping DYLD_INSERT_LIBRARIES
848      variable. (pguyot)
849
850    - Change some UI strings and documentation to read MacPorts, rather than
851      DarwinPorts. The project is adopting the new name "MacPorts", and will
852      be using the macports.org domain in the future.
853
854Release 1.3.1 (31-Jul-2006):
855
856    - Fixed a bug in livecheck sourceforge guess algorithm. (pguyot)
857
858    - Fixed an incompatibility of darwintrace.c with MacOS X 10.3. Darwintrace.c
859      now also compiles on Linux. (pguyot)
860
861    - Fixed a bug introduced by a patch to the fetch code. Now, fetch target
862      can really deal with patch files even if the main fetch method is CVS or
863      SVN. (pguyot)
864
865    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -f selfupdate from forcing
866      a build of the fetched sources. (jberry)
867
868    - Fixed a bug, introduced in 1.3, that prevented -u uninstall from working.
869      (jberry)
870
871    - Fixed a bug in xcode portgroup. One variable used by the group conflicted
872      with global variables in port base code. (pguyot)
873
874    - Added a new test case for a cvs+remote patch file bug. (pguyot)
875
876    - Added ruby gems support for ruby group. (rcavanaugh & pguyot)
877
878    - Trace now forbids creation of directories outside the sandbox. (pguyot)
879
880    - Additions to man page for port(1): (jberry)
881       * new port options -F, -i, -x, -p
882       * mention interactive and batch modes
883       * document extensions to info command.
884
885    - Archive mode is now disabled by default. (landonf)
886
887    - The upgrade target now properly detects and uses a matching binary
888      archive if found, an uninstall && install combination needed up till
889      now to pick it up. (jmpp)
890
891Release 1.3 (27-Jul-2006):
892
893    - Fixed a bug where only the first word of configuration settings (in
894      ports.conf) was processed. This bug affected the use of extra_env.
895      (Bugzilla #9948) (pguyot)
896
897    - Fixed a bug where environment variables governing proxy were not
898      capitalized properly. (blb & jberry)
899
900    - Fixed a bug where port outdated and port ugprade didn't work in direct
901      mode. (Bugzilla 7719, 7721) (dluke & jberry)
902
903    - Fixed several problems with iteration on ports. (jberry)
904
905    - Fixed a bug where curl LDFLAGS weren't properly propagated. (landonf)
906
907    - Fixed a bug where location update routine invoked when installing DP did
908      not take the DESTDIR variable into account. (jmpp)
909
910    - Fixed a bug where patchfiles specifications could not have suffixes to
911      indicate the master site. (pguyot)
912
913    - Fixed spelling in port(1) man page. (Bugzilla 8103) (pjenvey & jberry)
914
915    - Fixed a typo and another problem in messages generated by port command.
916      (Bugzilla 6706 & 6712) (deric & jmpp)
917
918    - Fixed a typo in ports.conf. (matt & jmpp)
919
920    - Fixed several problems with launchd support (Bugzilla 8372 & 10041)
921      (jberry)
922
923    - Fixed a bug preventing the use of libmd for checksums and added an
924      informative compilation error if libcrypto and libmd cannot be found.
925      (landonf)
926
927    - Fixed a bug where thread2.6 Tcl library wasn't installed where DP is
928      installed. (jmpp)
929
930    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which prevented the use of a custom
931      project path. (pguyot)
932
933    - Fixed a bug in xcode PortGroup which made destroot to fail when there
934      were spaces in the install path. (pguyot)
935
936    - Fixed a bug in portfetch.tcl which failed to fetch patches when using
937      CVS or SVN. (Bugzilla 5269) (yeled)
938
939    - Added new command 'delete' for use in Portfiles instead of
940      'file delete' and 'system "rm.."' (mww)
941
942    - Added more information to porthier(7) about ${prefix}/var/db/dports.
943      (olegb)
944
945    - Updated Gnome, KDE and SourceForge mirror lists. (Bugzilla 8045, 9152)
946      (rwhood, blb, olegb & pguyot)
947
948    - Check earlier if there is no Portfile in a directory (especially when
949      iterating). (jberry)
950
951    - Split livecheck into distcheck and livecheck. Added two regular expression
952      modes (one line, full file), set the default to check against freshmeat
953      and defined the default for perl5 group. (pguyot)
954
955    - Discover path to rsync at autoconf time. (jberry)
956
957    - Mark CVS, TAR, GNUTAR, and RSYNC as additional precious variables that can
958      be overridden in configure environment at time of configure to customize
959      the location of these tools. Note that these tools are not found in the dp
960      prefix, as PATH is sanitized of references to prefix. But you could
961      override the precious variables to acheive that if you really want to
962      shoot yourself. (jberry)
963
964    - Set timeouts for curl transfers.  Some connections to sketchy mirror sites
965      can hang forever otherwise. (jkh)
966
967    - Shortened the time to upgrade with archive mode on by using archive as the
968      target. (Bugzilla #7891) (dluke & jberry)
969
970    - Added support for sqlite 3. (jberry)
971
972    - Major update of the trace (-t) option (pguyot):
973      * backported changes from darwinbuild's version of darwintrace, including
974        several bug fixes.
975      * cleaned up the code.
976      * writing/creating and also unlinking a file outside allowed bounds are
977        now blocked instead of being simply reported (previous version only
978        reported creations).
979      * fixed a bug where -t failed with X11 ports because ${prefix} got
980        overwritten.
981
982    - Added new native commands to handle privileges chores. (jberry)
983
984    - Add batch/interactive mode. In interactive mode, use readline when it's available.
985      Command and portname completion is available in interactive mode, as is readline
986      history. (jberry) 2005-11-07,08
987
988        * Add new option -F <filename> which specifies a command file to be
989          read and processed. Multiple such options may be given to provide
990          multiple command files. If filename is "-", then stdin is read.
991
992        * Option -i is equivilant to -F -, which forces processing of standard
993          input following any commands given as arguments.
994
995        * If port is invoked as portf, an -F is assumed as an implicit first
996          argument (so the real first argument is taken as a command file to
997          be processed). This should allow the use of a shebang line such as:
998            #!/usr/bin/env portf
999
1000        * Commands starting with # are treated as comments.
1001
1002        * Install a symbolic link /opt/local/bin/portf --> /opt/local/bin/port.
1003
1004        * New command "cd" is useful to change to a new directory/port while in
1005          interactive/batch mode.
1006
1007        * Multiple commands on a single line may be separated by a ';'
1008
1009        * Global command options may now be specified following a particular
1010          command; they will apply only to that command rather than to all
1011          command invocations. This is important for batch/interactive mode.
1012
1013    - Add new option -p, which ignores errors while processing within a command.
1014      (this subsumes some of the work that -f was previously overloaded to do).
1015      (jberry).
1016
1017    - Add new option -x, which exits immediately on errors while in batch mode (
1018      otherwise we don't exit on errors in batch mode). (jberry)
1019
1020    - Refactoring of port(1) to cast actions into distinct action procs. Adds
1021      the new action_array which is used for action dispatch, and also to generate
1022      the list of possible commands for help and command completion. (jberry)
1023
1024    - Initial version of portmirror binary to build a mirror of distfiles.
1025      (pguyot)
1026
1027    - Improvements and fixes to the tests. (pguyot)
1028
1029    - Added a new option (checksum.skip=yes) to bypass the checksum phase. This
1030      option is mostly useful on the command line to test older distfiles.
1031      (jberry)
1032
1033    - Added dependencies for rpm on virtual packages representing releases of
1034      MacOS X. (mww)
1035
1036    - Add to port the ability to query for specific meta-data fields.
1037      For instance: port info --maintainer --name category:java
1038      When specific fields are given, the legacy generalized info is not presented, and vis-versa.
1039      By default, the fields for each port are listed one-per-line, with a field label
1040      in front of each. (The field label is omitted if the global -q option is given).
1041      If the --line option is given, the fields are presented on one line, tab separated,
1042      and with no field label: port info --name --maintainer --line tomcat5 apache2
1043      Field names are those from the PortIndex, plus some convenience versions of
1044      those: (such as allowing category instead of categories).
1045      Fields which are actually lists (such as depends_lib) are displayed comma-separated.
1046      (jberry) 2006-02-16
1047
1048Release 1.2.1 (10-Apr-2006):
1049
1050    - Changes to darwinports build infrastructure to allow for build of
1051      the darwinports infrastructure as a multiarchitecture binary.
1052      This allows darwinports to be built as fat, but does nothing to
1053      allow ports themselves to be built as fat. To build darwinports
1054      fat, configure as follows:
1055        ./configure CFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386' SHLIB_LDFLAGS='-arch ppc -arch i386'
1056                                        backported from HEAD (jberry)
1057
1058    - Add a hack in order attempt to detect when a sourceforge mirror
1059      is actually returning an error page. If this is detected, proceed
1060      to the next mirror.               backported from HEAD (jberry)
1061
1062Release 1.2 (14-Dec-2005):
1063
1064    - Syntax change to disambiguate uses of the port's version on the command
1065      line, when coupled with new changes to accept multiple ports.
1066      The port version must now always be prefixed with an @. Example:
1067        port uninstall vim @1.0
1068      This probably only affects uninstall and activate, both of which
1069      require a version if there are multiple versions installed.
1070
1071    - gzip-compress manpages that are in the share/man/cat? directories during
1072      destroot, too. (mww)
1073
1074    - Enhance port command such that targets that require a port to be
1075      specified will now all default to a port in current directory. (jberry)
1076
1077    - Enhance port command to allow multiple ports per invocation.
1078      Where previously one said "port install porta; port install portb",
1079      one can now say "port install porta portb". (jberry)
1080
1081    - Enhance port command to allow use of shell-like glob patterns for
1082      port selection. When a glob pattern is found, the group of ports
1083      matching the glob pattern is substituted. (jberry)
1084
1085    - Enhance port command to allow use of "pseudo" portnames to specify
1086      groups of ports.
1087      When one of these pseudo portnames is specified on the command line,
1088      the corresponding group of ports is substituted.
1089
1090      Currently defined pseudo portnames are:
1091        current, all, installed, uninstalled, active, inactive, outdated.
1092
1093      Additional pseudo portnames can be used to select ports based on a
1094      regex pattern match against certain criteria. Each port selector is
1095      a name, followed by a colon, followed by the desired regex pattern.
1096      The selectors are:
1097      variants:, variant:, description:, portdir:, homepage:, epoch:,
1098      platforms:, platform:, name:, long_description:, maintainers:, maintainer:,
1099      categories:, category:, version:, and revision: (jberry)
1100
1101    - Enhance port command to allow use of set expressions to combine
1102      ports or groups of ports.
1103      Supported operators are "and", "or", "not", "!", "(", ")". (jberry)
1104
1105    - Enhance port command to allow a port to be specified through a file:
1106      url instead of via portname. This function was previously available
1107      though the -D and -u options, which make less sense now that multiple
1108      ports can be specified to a target. (jberry)
1109
1110    - Under Tiger, startupitems are now by default generated for launchd
1111      rather than systemstarter. (jberry)
1112
1113    - Add new startupitem keys startupitem.executable, startupitem.logfile,
1114      startupitem.logevents, startupitem.pidfile, supported for both
1115      systemstarter and launchd. (jberry)
1116
1117    - New Test framework. Running make test from base/tests/ will test
1118      several features of port(1) including syntax of Portfiles. New tests
1119      can easily be added by simply creating new directories in base/tests/
1120      with a Portfile and a master file containing the output of port test
1121      in this directory. Some tests are actually more complex. These tests
1122      require the port binary to be installed in ${prefix}. (pguyot)
1123
1124    - svn fetching support, parallel to cvs fetching. Note that
1125      this is a bit skanky as svn is not installed on the platform by default.
1126      This code will error-out if svn is not installed. (jberry)
1127
1128    - Removal of old "fetch.args" parameter now that all Portfiles have been
1129      properly moved to leverage Paul's libcurl work (yeled)
1130
1131    - DP now sets its own env variables instead of filtering user declared
1132      ones considered harmful (blb)
1133
1134    - "Canonicalization" of expanded path:${prefix}/foo:bar dependencies
1135      when including them in the PortIndex for better abstraction (jberry/pguyot)
1136
1137    - Addition of the IndexRegen.sh script that takes care of the automated
1138      index thingie... (pguyot and jmpp)
1139
1140    - Miscellaneous cleanups:
1141        - DP base is assured to respect a temporary DESTDIR installation and
1142          other Makefile cleanups (toby, jmpp)
1143        - s/--with-tclpackagedir/--with-tclpackage/g in autoconf error
1144          reports (pguyot)
1145        - fixes for the buildall.sh script (jkh)
1146
1147    - Some other fixes for lurking bugs, untapped by the various developments
1148      that have taken place since 1.1 ("bunch of developers ;-);
1149
1150    - Snazzy new ChangeLog file
1151
1152    - Add new actions for port(1): help (get help about port),
1153      echo (the expanded arguments),
1154      cat (the contents of the Portfiles from the specified ports),
1155      edit (also alias "ed", the contents of the Portfiles, using EDITOR or VISUAL),
1156      dir (emit path to the port's directory),
1157      file (emit path to the port's Portfile)
1158      (jberry)
1159
1160    - On make install, upgrade ports.conf and sources.conf to change rsync.opendarwin.org
1161      to rsync.darwinports.org. This is now our preferred rsync hostname.
1162      Likewise, rename the rsync destination directories in ${prefix}/var/db/dports/sources
1163      in a similar fashion (jberry)
