 SyntaxError: invalid syntax
 The problem is that Macports's wrapper `pypy-c` script uses a raw `$@` to
 proxy the arguments to the actual pypy binary, which "unpacks" them. `$@`
 should be quoted, or the script should be replaced by a symlink.

 As I'm not sure how to setup symlinks via portfiles, I'll just link a
 patch to correctly quoting the file in question.
