Comment (by RJVB):

 Agreed for `port select`.

 I think the proper way to address the timidity.cfg configuration file
 question is to install both out-of-the-box-supported versions under
 special names or in a special location (or even keep them in `filespath`),
 and install one of the two in the post-activate phase if the file doesn't
 already exist. Which of the two is installed can be under control of a

 I don't know if this is the official way to handle such a situation, but
 with an approach like this the file won't be overwritten each time we
 update timidity. That will most likely not be necessary, and remember that
 the user ought to be able to change the file to use a sound .cfg file that
 doesn't come from MacPorts.
