Macports on os x lion

I am installing mac os x lion from a clean snow leopard machine.

I did install two applications and a USB driver, but other than that I had a clean  install of snow leopard, from my original snow leopard install DVDs that came with my MacBook pro laptop.

I then installed snow leopard updates and now I am installing lion.

Just wondered if there is anything I should be concerned about installing macports under lion?

I had originally tried to install macports to use recoll a unix search tool. And I remember getting a lot of command line software. One question I have is does all that software have to be updated to work on the new mac os? And will macports take care of that for me?

I originally couldn't install macports, I basically underestimated the time needed to install recoll and macports.

That is why I originally reinstalled snow leopard. But just wondered when I eventually try again under mac os x lion, if there is anything I need to be aware of?

Thanks in advance
