This was not a clean attempt. Please clean and try again.

Also, use of su is not recommended. Instead, use sudo. If you want a root shell, use sudo -s instead of sudo su.

I've been meaning to update the nedi port to 1.0.8. I'll should be able to get that done by Friday.

You didn't add a pre-activate block to clean up the formerly directly-installed org.macports.nedisyslog.plist, which causes activation failures. See #49989.
