port tells me that there are two different versions of git available, but
when I try to install the newer version the older one gets installed
instead. It looks like this:


$ port search git-core
git-core @1.7.7 (devel)
    A fast version control system (perl5.14 modified)

git-core @ (devel)
    A fast version control system

Found 2 ports.

$ sudo port install git-core at


$ port installed git-core
The following ports are currently installed:
  git-core @1.7.7_1+bash_completion+doc+pcre+python27 (active)


How do I make port install version
