Can I use Macports to update Enthought python?

Hmmm... I installed Spyder via Macports and it installed pretty well everything I want. So why did I bother with Enthought, you ask. Good question :-)
The only benefit is that the Enthought distro installs very quickly.
Spyder from the command line runs the system python (or python), not the Enthought.
