Description

When I try to install gnuplot, I get the following error message:

Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: xinstall: Cannot stat: /opt/local/var/macports/distfiles/gnuplot/gnuplot-4.4.0.pdf, No such file or directory

The stdout from running "sudo port -d install gnuplot" is attached, as is the log file.

Summary: gnuplot cannot stat gnuplot-4.4.0.pdffetch succeeds when distfiles are only in altworkpath, but ports may expect them in distpath

I'm guessing you fetched gnuplot without using sudo, so this is similar to #25418.

There have continued to be reports of this problem since the release of MacPorts 1.9.2, most recently in ticket 27682 by a user who has never had an earlier version of MacPorts installed.

That doesn't look like the same problem.
