Description

https://guide.macports.org/#development.creating-portfile says:

distpath
Location to store downloaded distfiles.

Value: ${portdbpath}/distfiles/${dist_subdir}/
dist_subdir
Create a sub-directory in distpath to store all fetched files

This means dist_subdir is used for building distpath and at the same time distpath is used for building dist_subdir which does not make sense.
