I have been trying to install kde 3. I keep getting an error when it 
gets to the python build. Python is installed I see it in my 
applications/mac ports directory. For some reason I don't understand it 
says it is unregistered? Here is the error output:

Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: 
/Applications/MacPorts/MacPython 2.5/Build already exists and does not belong to a 
registered port.  Unable to activate port python25.
Error: The following dependencies failed to build: kdebase3 kdelibs3 
unsermake py25-zlib python25 libusb kdenetwork3 openslp kdepim3 gpgme

py25-numeric sqlite3 swig bison gsed php5 apache2 apr apr-util db46 
autoconf213 gawk curl libmcrypt mhash python_select ruby kdeutils3
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

Any help apreciated.
