Hi - I am trying to install macports on my macbook (osx10.4.9), primarily to
run nemesis.

Having installed the binary 1.4, sucessfully, when I run %sudo port
selfupdate I get this error.

sudo port selfupdate
DarwinPorts base version 1.400 installed
Downloaded MacPorts base version 1.442
Configuring, Building and Installing new MacPorts base
Error: /opt/local/bin/port: selfupdate failed: Error installing new MacPorts
base: shell command "cd
&& ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --with-install-user=root
--with-install-group=admin --with-tclpackage=/Library/Tcl && make && make
install" returned error 1
Command output: checking build system type... i686-apple-darwin8.9.1

checking for cc... no
checking for cl.exe... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.

Sorry to be fick - but, what the hell?

Any advice much appreciated.
