Sorry - I lost that context already. I'm going to be setting up
another system soon - if it happens again, I'll capture all of it.

Yes, I probably don't need it, but the port dependencies think I do.
The blog entry I mentioned ( http://blog.duncandavidson.com/2006/04/
sandboxing_rail.html ) is pretty widely referenced, so I expect a lot
of people have their first experience with macPorts trying to set up
a Ruby on Rails environment by following these instructions. So when
it blows up on db44, they don't know what to do.

OK - maybe it was the +universal that did the trick? I'm not sure why
a "port clean" and then "port install db44 +universal" would fix it,
but it did.
I posted that on the site, so perhaps that will get people past this
