 I read this file, and I discovered that I didn't accept the agreements of
 So I type "sudo xcodebuild -license" and agree to them
 Then I type another "sudo port selfupdate" and it worked.

 But then an issue appears :

 mbp-de-benjamin:~ Benjamin$ sudo port selfupdate
 --->  Updating MacPorts base sources using rsync
 MacPorts base version 2.2.1 installed,
 MacPorts base version 2.3.3 downloaded.
 --->  Updating the ports tree
 --->  MacPorts base is outdated, installing new version 2.3.3
 Installing new MacPorts release in /opt/local as root:admin; permissions
 0755; Tcl-Package in /Library/Tcl

 The ports tree has been updated. To upgrade your installed ports, you
 should run
   port upgrade outdated
 mbp-de-benjamin:~ Benjamin$ port upgrade outdated
 Error: Insufficient privileges to write to MacPorts install prefix.

 How do we get privileges to write to MacPorts ?
