If you already had 2.2.1 installed before the OS upgrade, selfupdate will not reconfigure/rebuild and this will not work. That's why I suggested using `sudo port -f selfupdate`, which skips the version check and forces the rebuild, but I now realize this might not have triggered a re-configure either.

Why wouldn’t “sudo port -f selfupdate" have triggered a re-configure and re-build? I thought that’s exactly what it would do.
