Here's the installation command being executed:
<me>$ sudo port install py25-gtk py-serial py25-xml py25-hashlib

Here's the relevant portion of the installing script's reports:
To fully complete your installation and make python 2.5 the default,  
please run

	sudo port install python_select
	sudo python_select python25

So should I do now?
