thanks. A puzzle at this moment as grep recently built on every buildbot <>, so it's something unique. I see you're on 10.7 setup to libc++. Should still be fine. Will check.

you appear to be running MacPorts base development version. The configure phase ends with a file not found error, and your path seems short on entries : PATH='/usr/bin:/Users/Lemberg/This'

can you post up your .profile?

cd ~
cat .profile

MacPorts overrides the PATH completely for compilation phases. The problem was probably introduced when configuring this custom MacPorts installation. Also check binpath in ${prefix}/etc/macports/macports.conf.

Note the guide also covers this:

Here's my .profile file:

export PATH="/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH"
export PATH="/usr/local/texlive/2018/bin/x86_64-darwinlegacy:$PATH"

export PS1='\u:\w> '
export LESS="-M -I -R"
export EDITOR=joe

and my macports.conf file (beautified to avoid long lines). Note that directory This is a test mentioned in binpath doesn't exist.

prefix                  /opt/local
portdbpath              /opt/local/var/macports
binpath                 /Users/Lemberg/This is a Test\
applications_dir        /Applications/MacPorts
frameworks_dir          /opt/local/Library/Frameworks
sources_conf            /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf
variants_conf           /opt/local/etc/macports/variants.conf
cxx_stdlib              libc++
buildfromsource         always
universal_archs         x86_64 i386

Up to now I was able to install all Macports packages; this is the first problem ever encountered.

Evidently, spaces are not supported in binpath. Rename your "This is a Test" directory so that its name does not contain spaces, update binpath in macports.conf with the new name, and try again.

Worked, thanks. It's quite interesting that this port fails with my old binpath, while hundreds of other port updates didn't have a single problem – I had added this directory for testing purposes two months ago, and all updates since then worked flawlessly.
