Description (last modified by blb@…)

I just loaded MACPorts 1.7 and it installed correctly. When I attempt to install gmake I get the following errors.

$ sudo port install gmake
--->  Fetching expat
--->  Attempting to fetch expat-2.0.1.tar.gz from

Make sure you have Xcode installed, and the latest version at that (since you're on 10.5, that would be Xcode 3.1.2); have a look at the guide and especially the installing section which should cover what you need for a successful install of MacPorts.

No response, going to assume Xcode just isn't installed.
