As you figured out I'm sure, I am not familiar with Unix. But  
following your instruction, port commands are now being executed for me.

I just read about .profile  in Kirk McElearn's book on Unix for Mac  
OS, and MacPorts is now downloading, building, installing, and  
activating a number of packages to support D-Rats on my MacBook Pro.
