MacPorts throws errors on everything (include uninstall) since selfupdate

HI Harald,

unfortunately the log file's gone now, so cdn't get the values. I just 
managed to get graphviz to install (by using the -f flag with install), 
then retried emacs-app, and this time everything was fine, the original 
log file has disappeared, so I get the impression it was overwritten.

So either it's just been fixed or whatever the issue was happened to 
have been resolved in the previous install with the override.

thanks again for your help.

P.S. One other thing I discovered, by checking the output during the 
graphviz install with -f, is that the dbus dependencies which broke that 
initially was because in /Library/LaunchDaemons on my machine the plist 
file I needed to delete was "org.freedesktop.dbus-system.*" rather than 
"org.macports.*", which is what the uninstall list includes - I didn't 
have the latter on my machine.
