That's an interesting difference, and does seem to reflect a difference in
'port'. I have indeed run 'sudo port selfupdate' today. It says I am running
version 2.0.2. Is that what you are running? I also did 'sudo port upgrade

When I installed Mac Os X 10.6, I did, as recommended, restart MacPorts from
nothing, but maybe something has gone mysteriously wrong despite my care. I
hope I won't have to delete everything and start again. It takes so long to
rebuild everything.

I tried to uninstall zlib, wanting to reinstall it, but there are a lot of
ports that depend on zlib, so it refused to uninstall. Should I use -f on
zlib or will that make everything break?
