typo in macports guide section Install Multiple MacPorts Copies

Reported by: von.helmut@… Owned by: markd@…
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: guide Version: 1.6.0
Keywords: guide typo Cc:


regarding installing multiple copies of macports,

"%% ./configure --prefix=NEW_PREFIX --with-tcl-package=NEW_TCLPACKAGE"

--with-tcl-package should be --with-tclpackage

if "--with-tcl-package" is used, configure with ignore this and overwrite the default installation in /Library/Tcl/macports1.0

not the end of the world, as one can go into that directory and edit macports_autoconf.tcl and macports_fastload.tcl to fix them.

that's all. :)

to clarify - of course now that i look at it again, the paragraph above the code containing this configure line does use the correct "--with-tclpackage." but below that it doesn't:

%% export PATH=/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin %% cd ~/MacPorts-1.x.x/ %% ./configure --prefix=NEW_PREFIX --with-tcl-package=NEW_TCLPACKAGE %% make %% sudo make install
