Following the instructions in, I have successfully wiped my old installation and then I have attempted to reinstall my ports one by one. However, when trying to install the first one (ispell) port fails fairly early with the error message below. Does anybody know of a fix/workaround (short of setting the macport user to root)?

I suspect very few of us have access to Mavericks at this time. Needless to say, running MacPorts on pre-release operating systems is unsupported.
