I attempted to install macports on a macbook with OS 10.5.5 from macports-1.6.0pkg. I got the following message:

Install step failed. run postflight script for macports1.6.0

Any suggestions?

It could have failed for several reasons; do you know if you are able to use rsync from your network location (if not, this could have caused the selfupdate to fail).

If you try to run 'port version' in Terminal and see 'command not found', it could have failed to update your .profile; see .profile not setup to deal with that.
