Perhaps, but on a new MacBook, fresh out of the factory?

Port installed! I'd forgotten all about that, but the results were a  
bit strange:

   zlib @1.2.3_0 (active)

In short, I seem to have duplicates of almost everything. I have now  
have two httpd.conf, one at /opt/local/apache2/conf, which has all  
the right lines for php5 and subversion, and one at /opt/local/var/db/ 
(sic!), which does not have the right lines. And sure enough, when I  
try to test my php, it does not compile but simply shows the source  
code. Should I uninstall the old versions?
