Looks like the corrected instructions are adapted from the FAQ.

The FAQ still lists /etc/manpaths.d/macports and /etc/paths.d/macports as needing removal but I have a feeling the code that installs those items got removed from MacPorts trunk, and was never in a released version of MacPorts. So maybe that can be removed from the FAQ at some point. OTOH the uninstall instructions currently include commands that are supposed to remove any version of MacPorts, so maybe we should leave it in.

I added the paths to this list, although they were never in a release. The code for this is still in trunk, but disabled by false && ... in configure.ac.

Maybe we should just link to the guide from the FAQ instead of maintaing this list at two places.
