I didn't try 1.4rc1... How do I try 1.4rc2? If I have a working copy  
of the release_1_4 branch, do I just configure, make, sudo make  
install? Does it just overwrite my existing 1.3.2 installation?  
Anything else I need to do to make it work? Anything to watch out  
for? The only way I've ever upgraded MacPorts in the past was to use  
sudo port selfupdate so I just want to make sure I don't hose  
something here.
