I just got the following output after running "svn up" followed by
"sudo port selfupdate":
Warning: port definitions are more than two weeks old, consider using selfupdate
---> Updating the ports tree

MacPorts base version 1.9.99 installed,

I assume this is a common problem on Lion? If not, I'd be happy to
provide whatever logs are needed to troubleshoot this.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
