I don’t know what problem you were having but this is not correct and I’ve deleted your change. In this page, it describes how to work on a local version of arb. It shows how you can create arb-devel based on arb. So in this portion of the code, you’re working on that new arb-devel port, so that’s the one you need to patch, and then `cd` into its work directory. If it’s not working for you as described and you can’t figure out what’s wrong, describe the problem in more detail and hopefully someone here can help. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to subscribe to macports-dev before you reply.
