    1111  <para>There are three MacPorts configuration files that define important
     
    293293          (rsync, tar, etc.) during port installation. Only applications in
    294294          these directories are available while ports are being installed even
    295           if other paths are specified by $PATH in a user's environment.
    296           Setting the binpath variable should only be performed by advanced

     302            <para>The binpath is implicitly defined, but it may be overwritten
     303            by defining the variable in macports.conf. However, using a
     304            non-default binpath is discouraged and should only be performed by
     305            advanced users.</para>
