Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>

	The command:

sudo port install texlive full	

	There appears to be no ticket for python26 dying on texlive installs. 
If there are any solutions to this problem might someone advise me?

	Incidentally, this is the first port I have attempted to install since 
wiping my machine of all port remnants and installing 
MacPorts-1.9.1-10.6-SnowLeopard.dmg. The wipe was months past.
