First, nice job with macports - very cool idea and it appears that
there's lots of tremendous work done behind it so far.

I'm trying to install the ntfs-3g port, but it's been a bit tricky.
First, I ran into the Ruby (1.8) issue in Leopard (10.5.4) while
attempting to install the macfuse dependency. A quick google search
popped up the solution here:


After hacking my Ruby framework with that patch, I was able to get
macfuse installed cleanly. I thought I was in the clear until I hit

wedamon-mbp:wedamon {~} sudo /opt/local/bin/port
MacPorts 1.600

What's the trick to getting this package downloaded/installed?

Many thanks,
