Thanks for the hints...

Ok you are right it seems to use the same variants,
but one learnes about it only after all the compilation
is over.... (this is even with the -v option...)

--->  Fetching ImageMagick
--->  ImageMagick-6.3.2-9.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /opt/local/ 
--->  Attempting to fetch ImageMagick-6.3.2-9.tar.bz2 from http:// 
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for ImageMagick
--->  Checksumming ImageMagick-6.3.2-9.tar.bz2
--->  Extracting ImageMagick
--->  Extracting ImageMagick-6.3.2-9.tar.bz2
--->  Configuring ImageMagick
--->  Building ImageMagick with target all
--->  Staging ImageMagick into destroot
--->  Compressing man pages for ImageMagick
--->  Deactivating ImageMagick 6.3.2-4_0+darwin_8+jpeg2
--->  Installing ImageMagick 6.3.2-9_0+darwin_8+jpeg2
--->  Activating ImageMagick 6.3.2-9_0+darwin_8+jpeg2

would it be better to print first what is going to be done,
something like
---> Upgrading ImageMagick 6.3.2-4_0+darwin_8+jpeg2 -> 6.3.2-9_0 

Just sugestion...
Thanks, J.
