that does not work for me:

sudo port install texlive
--->  Staging texlive_texmf-full into destroot
Error: Target org.macports.destroot returned: error copying
file already exists
Error: The following dependencies failed to build: texlive_texmf-full
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

As I am new to macports i do not want to mess up everything. The only option
now is to remove macports (texlive wont uninstall -f) which will take looong
on my old Mac.

Any help apppreciated.
