Fwd: Deleted image files in MacPorts - how to fix?

Hi all

I've sorted this out by issuing "port upgrade outdated". The solution  
would not be ideal for users who did not want to change from the  
current ports, but for me upgrading them all was no problem. Gimp  
installed fine after this.

Hi all

New subscriber here. I recently deleted some image folders (in  
/opt/local/var/macports/software/) upon advice in a macports bug  
report, and find that it has somewhat borked my macports install. I  
have documented everything I have tried in this post:


I am really keen to fix this without reinstalling macports entirely.  
In fact I went to the uninstall part of the macports manual, and it  
recommended that uninstalling is rarely necessary, and that I should  
ask for help first. So, here I am! Any ideas or suggestions gratefully  

Thanks in advance,

Birmingham, UK
