Looks like you don't have XCode installed.

What is your OS version? What's in your $PATH? Can you actually run the commands being complained about from the shell?

Read the ticket, I have Xcode 2.5 installed.

Is that question mark a typo or is it really in PATH? Do you have tr, run

ls -l /usr/bin/tr

I have the same problem, I am running Tiger 10.4, and have XCode 2.5

echo $PATH gives

/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/Current/bin:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:/opt/local/bin/:/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/:/sw/bin/:/bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-current:/Applications/MATLAB/bin

which sed gives:

/usr/bin/sed

I can run cat, sed and other commands from my terminal window. I am not sure what's going on.

While trying to install a port, I get

Yasir, has this ever worked for you?

What's in your /opt/local/etc/macports/macports.conf -- specifically, what's binpath set to?

comment:12 in reply to:  11 Changed 12 years ago by yasir.suhail@…

I think it stopped working at a certain point.

Here's what it said in my macports.conf:

binpath                 /opt/local/bin/:/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.5/bin/:/sw/bin

I added /bin:/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/local/bin to it. It seems to work now. Thanks!!

Uncommenting binpath is unsupported.
