 == Using MacPorts ==
 At this point, most things should work like they do for anyone else; you will encounter some newer functionality that hasn't found its way to a release yet, and occasionally a bug.  If so, be sure to [http://trac.macports.org/newticket report the bug] when it happens.
+== Typical Problems ==
+ * The tcl command {{{cd}}} has been removed in trunk. It was never really intended to be used in portfiles, and it got removed because of it was considered confusing for it's side-effects. See #12914 for a few more details and Ryan Schmidt's explanation on the dev list [http://lists.macosforge.org/pipermail/macports-dev/2008-July/005652.html in this mail]. If you encounter this problem with a port, please file a bug against this port which still uses {{{cd}}}.
