I sincerely hope they are not actually telling you to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH;
OS X is not Linux and setting that stands a very good chance of breaking

sudo port install root5

Not beforehand although usually it's /opt/local/bin. `port contents root5`
after installing it will show you the paths of all the installed files,
