Thanks for the response!
(1) How do I move the /opt/local aside (do you mean move into a
separate tmp dir)?
(2) In addition, how would you suggest I install the new version of
MacPorts (from source or dmg)?
(3) How do I move / merge the config stuff back (from tmp, if my
assumption for line item # 1 is correct)?
