 == Updating MacPorts Base ==
 Versions of MacPorts built on 10.8 or lower will fail to install packages on Mavericks because of a missing `/usr/bin/gnutar`. The solution to that problem is to re-install MacPorts. Since no binary installer is available yet, [http://guide.macports.org/#installing.macports.source installation from source] is currently the only way to do this.
+One other possible solution: download and ./configure && make && sudo make install gnutar from here: http://www.gnu.org/software/tar/#downloading, then install and symlink to /usr/bin/gnutar. This fixed my macports installation on Mavericks without a re-install.
 Ensure you have at least the command line tools installed by running `xcode-select --install` from a Terminal. Make sure to also run this even if you have Xcode installed, because you will otherwise see an error message about MacPorts not being able to find Tcl.
