This is going to run with the default PATH, not the one you have set  
up for shells/Terminal windows.  You probably want to change the above  
script to add /opt/local/bin to $PATH, since other programs launched  
from the Dock or an icon may behave oddly if they start using  
MacPorts' versions of programs instead of the system ones they use now.
