 I'm not sure why the postinstall script failed, and unfortunately the
 installer hasn't provided us any information to help diagnose it.

 The good news is that if you got to the point where the installer would
 run the postinstall script, MacPorts has been successfully installed.
 Depending on where the postinstall script failed, you may need to do some
 of the steps it would have done for you, such as adding the macports user
 and group, adding /opt/local/bin and /opt/local/sbin to your shell's PATH
 variable and running "sudo port selfupdate".

 You can run "dscl . read /Users/macports" to see if the macports user has
 been added. Hopefully it has. If not, let us know.
