myron$ sudo port install netcat
---> Verifying checksum(s) for netcat
---> Extracting netcat
---> Configuring netcat
---> Building netcat with target generic
---> Staging netcat into destroot
---> Installing netcat 1.10_2
---> Activating netcat 1.10_2
---> Cleaning netcat
But it doesn't seem to have installed anything in /opt/local/bin
myron$ sudo find / -name netcat -print
port installed returns that netcat is installed, though
netcat @1.10_2 (active)
