xcomment.sty is very short:

$ cat /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/tex/generic/xcomment/xcomment.sty
%% $Id: xcomment.sty 315 2010-05-14 21:31:03Z herbert $
\ProvidesPackage{xcomment}[2010/05/13 package wrapper for 
  xcomment.tex (hv)]
  [\filedate\space v\fileversion\space `xcomment' (tvz)]

as you can see, it really needs xcomment.tex. I don't understand how the package is made: if I request who provides xcomment, it says:

$ port provides /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/tex/generic/xcomment/xcomment.sty
/opt/local/share/texmf-texlive-dist/tex/generic/xcomment/xcomment.sty is provided by: texlive-latex-extra

yet if I grep for xcomment in the package, its answer is in *doc*:

$ port contents texlive-latex-extra | grep xcomment

so the file is there, but at the wrong place (or so it seems).
