Fwd: macports instal pkg - alert msg

What is normal to you?

I don't recall using a prefix, but ran both installers from their default location which happened to be /opt/local,
also I did not choose  /Applications/MacPorts as applications_dir tocreate the package in the first place.
Both installs were left at default setting. 

It seems I now have a decision to make and some files to delete. 

I don't want to distribute, but there is no Mac pkg available for this (latest) version of mypaint. As the earlier version has serious 
functional deficits (no pressure sensitivity) I am glad to make it available. However, I am not sure how or where to do this. I have 
posted a note on a mypaint forum. Perhaps someone will tell me.

Thanks again to you, all.

Creating a pkg is only necessary if you want to redistribute this
package. Otherwise just use a normal installation:

  sudo port install mypaint

In case you really want to redistribute this package, you should not use
/opt/local as prefix and /Applications/MacPorts as applications_dir to
create the package in the first place. Please choose a different prefix
to avoid conflicts.

This looks correct.

This is the installed version from the pkg installer.

Then it was probably not created by a default MacPorts installation,
which uses /opt/local.
