MacPorts OS X 10.6.2 install problem

I think you're right about an OpenDarwin install years ago - completely forgotten. Your suggestion certainly looks like the solution, except that I can't find a way to change the read-only permissions to allow editing. Using mv to replace old with newly-edited files fails because of the same problem. So perhaps uninstall is the only way?

If you don't have any customizations in your real config files in there, you can just copy each ".default" file to each real file and be done with it. Or you can manually compare each ".default" and real file and bring over the changes.
