cyrus-sasl2 fails to install (surprising to me)

I'm not sure what to make of this, but the cyrus-sasl2 port (which several
others depend on with respect to security) fails to install on a fresh (new)
MacBook (Intel Core 2 Duo) running OS X 10.4.9 and all of Apple's latest
security updates. I haven't had any problems installing other MacPorts so

This is strange because I've never had a problem with it before with
cyrus-sasl2 (historically it has been an easy port to install). I've pasted
the *tail* of the very long and verbose output from running a verbose
installation attempt (I have a copy of the entire output if that would be
useful). I'm not sure what to do -- I had a look at the Portfile and some of
the work files but I can't find which script issues the move ("mv") command.
I am wondering however if there was a recent error introduced into the build
scripts because there appears to be a blank space in the name of the
directory that its trying to move a file to specifically between the 's' in
kerberos and the 'd' in darwin, as verbatim:


Any suggestions on what I can do to correct this are quite appreciated. If
successful in repairing, I'd be happy to submit a patch if that would be

Much thanks,
