Sorry, I was mistaken with an earlier attempt using git-svn. I did the command as shown, and don't have dports/dports .

Of course it doesn't exist :) the `var/macports/sources` part is duplicated, and it seems that in sources.conf, $prefix==/opt/local/var/macports/sources/ ...

Is there anything one should change in macports.conf (and that's not listed in the how-to) to stop `port selfupdate` from trying to do an rsync?
