Damn, that's output from akonadi to the same terminal that I didn't catch. Sorry.

I did run with the prefix set to the actual location for some time (and /opt/local just an easy entry point for my own convenience). I don't remember if these errors started after that, but they probably did.

The weird thing is that I also get them on my 10.9 installation, and that one has been rebuilt from scratch following the migration guidelines.

Annoying that there's the akonadi output in the middle of things, but it *does* look like something tries to take the contents of a Portfile and use that as a file name. Any idea how and where that might arrive?
