Lion and Xcode 4 both install their respective formerly-optional components
by default now, and neither has any user-visible components; this is a
consequence of their being packaged as online-only App Store-compatible
"lumps".  MacPorts' documentation is lagging a bit behind changes to
itself, OS X, and Xcode.  (Feel free to submit documentation patches; the
lag is a consequence of being an as-time-allows community effort, and
probably of dev types generally being not so good with documenting.)
