Comment (by amake):

 I am unable to reproduce.

 The message about `GRADLE_HOME` in the portfile predates my involvement,
 and [https://discuss.gradle.org/t/do-we-really-need-gradle-home-docs-site-
 inconsistency/21671/4 appears to be obsolete or incorrect]—you don't need
 it (I don't have it set and gradle works fine for me).

 Second, you don't need to add `/opt/local/share/java/gradle/bin/` to your
 path, as the gradle binary there is symlinked to `/opt/local/bin`, which
 should already be on your path.

 As for the error message you are getting, I once got a similar message
 when trying to run gradle a) in a directory that had a space in the path
 and b) on an external volume that was formatted with a case-sensitive
 filesystem. Does that at all describe your situation?

 I ended up reformatting my disk to be case-insensitive, and I also removed
 the space from the path, so I can't remember which fixed it.

 Another thing to note: You definitely should *not* be running gradle with
