Comment (by avalade@…):

 I didn't find any log files that could give me a clue on what went wrong
 with my installation. /var/log/install.log was not present. I do not use
 the ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login. My expectation would have been to
 find something like:

 # MacPorts Installer addition on 2013-12-19_at_11:05:21: adding an
 appropriate PATH variable for use with MacPorts.
 export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH
 # Finished adapting your PATH environment variable for use with MacPorts.

 to be added to my ~/.profile. That what happened to my previous
 installation (I was using MAC OS Mountain Lion then).

 Also, for the default location to get ports, you are using
 rsync.macports.org/release/tarballs/ports.tar (Got this from
 sources.conf). It seems that rsync.macports.org/release does not even

 I used the workaroud where I added myself the environment variable to my
 ~/.profile but the selfupdate will fail because of connection timeout. I
 have contacted my IT service to enquire for any firewall or server setting
 that would prevent the connection to rsync.macports.org and they are the
 one who mentionned that rsync.macports.org/release seems to be
 unavailable. Is it possible that it has change location?

 As per documentation, it is my undestanding that the installer for MAC is
 the one setting the environment variable and doing the fist selfupdate. If
 either of those fail, should the user at least be notified?
