the README should mention that /opt/local/sbin in PATH

Description (last modified by jmpp@…)

The README instructs the user to put the following in PATH

set path=($path /opt/local/bin) and export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin

many ports use /opt/local/sbin for binaries and that directory should be in PATH also.

Why /opt/local ? All port are installed in ${prefix}, by default /opt/local, but sometimes this path could be different like /opt/darwinports if we follow filesystems standards.

/opt/local is used because it is the default. I'm pretty sure that most places that /opt/local is mentioned explicitly, it also states something like "or $PREFIX/bin if you've elected to install DarwinPorts somewhere else".
