I upgraded to Mavericks a couple of days ago. I installed Xcode and command
line tools.  Today I am trying to run my little script to occasionally
upgrade outdated stuff.  Here is what I tried:

comermacpro:~ comerduncan$ bin/portupdateupgrade


First doing a selfupdate

--->  Updating MacPorts base sources using rsync

MacPorts base version 2.2.0 installed,

MacPorts base version 2.2.0 downloaded.

--->  Updating the ports tree

--->  MacPorts base is already the latest version

The ports tree has been updated. To upgrade your installed ports, you
should run

  port upgrade outdated


Next do an upgrade outdated

--->  Fetching archive for gperf

--->  Attempting to fetch gperf-3.0.4_2.darwin_13.x86_64.tbz2 from

--->  Attempting to fetch gperf-3.0.4_2.darwin_13.x86_64.tbz2 from

--->  Attempting to fetch gperf-3.0.4_2.darwin_13.x86_64.tbz2 from

--->  Fetching distfiles for gperf

--->  Verifying checksums for gperf

--->  Extracting gperf

Error: org.macports.extract for port gperf returned: command execution

Please see the log file for port gperf for details:


Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1

To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide:

I noted that in the log file there is a complaint that /bin/usr/gnutar does
not exist.  I am wondering whether this is part of the problem?  I have not
noted whether gnutar existed prior to the upgrade to Mavericks...  I am
attaching the log file.

Can someone please help?  Thanks very much!
