I got this error while doing "port destroot" on a release_1_7 tarball:

error renaming "/opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf" to "/opt/local/ 
etc/macports/sources.conf.mpsaved": file already exists
     while executing
"file rename ${sourcesConf} "${sourcesConf}.mpsaved""

It's wrong on several levels, since it does things outside of destroot ?

But once I removed the old backup file, it then built ok.
Should probably "file delete" any existing such .mpsaved ?

And it probably needs a MacPorts-1.7.0-beta1.dmg disk image
made to see any real (i.e. end user) beta testing, though ?
