I hope this posting won't arrive twice. I wrote a response, but I'm not sure
whether I sent it, so I'm trying again.

sudo port destroot teTex
worked without comment.
port work teTex
gave the response


Note that this ends with "work". When I did "ls -alR" on this directory, I

drwxr-xr-x   3 root  admin  102 Feb 19 00:11 ./
drwxr-xr-x   3 root  admin  102 Feb 19 00:11 ../
-rw-r--r--   1 root  admin    0 Feb 19 00:11 .macports.teTeX.state

So I have been unable to follow Rainer's advice.
