Component: ports Version: 1.6.0

Building ncursesw succeeds, but activation fails (thus breaking ports that depend on it) with a complaint about the file /opt/local/bin/captoinfo:

--->  Fetching ncursesw
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for ncursesw
--->  Extracting ncursesw
--->  Applying patches to ncursesw
--->  Configuring ncursesw
--->  Building ncursesw with target all
--->  Staging ncursesw into destroot
--->  Installing ncursesw 5.6_0+darwin_8
--->  Activating ncursesw 5.6_0+darwin_8
Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: /opt/local/bin/captoinfo already exists and does not belong to a registered port.  Unable to activate port ncursesw.
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

Such kind of error is not a bug in the port (if the filename starts with /opt/local except /opt/local/etc). You just need to remove /opt/local/bin/captoinfo that was installed by some broken software (ncursesw is not responsible for that).
