MacPorts has no way to do this from the command line like homebrew does.
You need to have a Portfile that explicitly specifies what to download
(where you can put in git HEAD, if you want).
Since such a Portfile will not be accepted into the main port tree, you
need to have a local portfile repository (as described in ), where
you can put this modified Portfile for MacPorts to pick up.
The guide also has all the information on how to fetch from git .
