Comment (by ionic@…):

 We seem to have no way to switch base fetching to HTTPS.

 That means two things:
   1.) you'll have to use "sync" instead of "selfupdate" (or else
 selfupdate will hang and in the end not work at all because it can't fetch
 a new base tarball via rsync)
   2.) you'll need to update MacPorts manually by running the installer
 again once a new version is released

 Luckily, base isn't updated very often, so it's not a big hurdle.

 I agree that the installer shouldn't bail out from creating a `~/.profile`
 file when selfupdate fails, though...
