I was trying to install ntop when I got a error on installing the  
dependency libevent. This is what
the log file says:

:msg:main --->  Computing dependencies for libevent:info:main .:msg:main

:notice:checksum Log for libevent is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/ 

What's the best way to correct this?
