In all the mirror sites of GNU, emacs-21.4 is named as "emacs.21.4a.tar.gz". But darwingports fetch the file named "emacs.21.4.tar.gz", so it will never be got!!!

I wonder if I have some methods to make darwinports get the version I want, but not the one defined in darwinports profile. For example, how can I install emacs-21.3 with darwinports? I am a fresh user! Thank you!

The 21.4a issue was fixed by jkh@ quite a while ago.

As far as using a different version than that specified by the Portfile, you'll need to learn a bit about how they are written (mostly just changing the version key) as well as setting up your own repository (so updating won't overwrite your changes). See < pt02.html> for the docs on Portfiles and <http://> for creating a local repository.
