Thanks for this suggestion. It has produce a log file that seems to indicate that I have, in fact, got *two* problems. Here are the relevamnt portions of the log file:-

Creating port index in /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/ports
Failed to parse file perl/p5-text-tabsxwrap/Portfile: can't set "depends_lib": invalid depspec: port:p5.12-text-tabs+wrap

I'm not sure about the perl issue; there doesn't appear to be a port with that title (according to port info) although there is a Portfile in the relevant location /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/ports/perl/p5-text-tabsxwrap/Portfile

The sqllite issue appears to be related to the /Library/Frameworks for mono not including a universal binary - as this isn't a port, I'm trying to install the available mono ports (mono, mono-basic & mono-addins)

More later.
