Nope, I did the checkout in $prefix/var/macports/sources/svn.macports.org/trunk using `svn co "http://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/trunk" dports` which should be the same as the command the how-to gives.

When I put file://$prefix/var/macports/sources/svn.macports.org/trunk/dports in macports.conf, I get an error during port -d sync saying that

/opt/local/var/macports/sources//var/macports/sources/svn.macports.org/trunk/dports doesn't exist.

That's on Linux, though -- maybe that's where the bat blesses?
