 > With a little more research, I've found that this is a Tcl error
 message, generated when Tcl is trying to launch a program, but cannot
 create a temporary file to store that program's error output. The problem
 is not specific to the openssl command. This explains why running the
 openssl command on the command line, outside of Tcl, succeeds.

 I agree that is not a porblem of openssl. On another computer I get the
 same error by upgrading hdf5:

 Warning: Failed to verify signature for archive!
 Error: org.macports.archivefetch for port hdf5 returned: archivefetch
 failed for hdf5 @1.8.16_2+cxx+hl
 Please see the log file for port hdf5 for details:
 Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1
 To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide:

 > > {{{
 > > bash-3.2# ls -ld /tmp
 > > lrwxr-xr-x@ 1 root  wheel  11 15 Nov  2014 /tmp -> private/tmp
 > > }}}
 > This only shows us the permissions of the /tmp symlink, not the
 permissions of the /private/tmp directory that the symlink points to. Can
 you try:
 > {{{
 > ls -ld /private/tmp
 > }}}

 As said, I have the same problem on two computers. In the following you
 can find the result of the command execution on both of them:

 drwxrwxrwt  7 root  wheel  238  1 Apr 19:37 /private/tmp

 drwxr-xr-x@ 19 sim  staff  646  2 Apr 04:07 /private/tmp

 On the first one, I work around the problem by completely uninstalling
 macport and reinstalling it.
 On the second I maintain the old macport.
