port select *

I'm running into some problems with port select...

1. It'd be nice if there was a command that showed you what _could_ be
selected by port select. (Maybe "port select --list", with no other args?)

2. But the bigger problem is that I can't get it to work at all:
$ sudo port select --set python python26
Selecting 'python26' for 'python' failed: The configuration file
'/opt/local/etc/select/python/base' could not be opened.

I had installed coreutils, python25 and python26 only at this point. When I
ls'd the dir:
$ ls /opt/local/etc/select/python/
python25    python26

That does explain why it couldn't be opened... I'm just unsure how to fix
