 I tried to install xfig on my iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, Late 2015) running
 macOS Monterey version 12.6.1 by completing the following steps:

 1. Downloaded xfig from https://sourceforge.net/projects/mcj/ and unpacked
 the downloaded tarball in the Downloads directory on my Mac.
 2. Installed Xcode and the xcode Command line tools from the app store
 3. Executed the command "sudo xcodebuild -license" in the terminal window
 and agreed to Xcode license terms and conditions
 4. Installed MacPorts for Monterey from https://github.com/macports
 5. Executed "sudo port install xfig" in the terminal window.

 At this point, I am getting a message: "Error: Port xfig not found".

 Am I supposed to move files downloaded in step 1 to any specific
 directory? Am I supposed to issue the step 5 command inside that or some
 other specific directory? Is there anything I am doing incorrectly in the
 above steps? Thank you.
