Hrm, thanks.

Yes, I didn't uninstall the base, just installed over it.

The problem was the uninstall of the ports.  This failed, and there
seemed no way that I could force MacPorts to get over it and move on.
I regret now that I didn't save the information on that error, to
report it here.

Oh?  How is that?
