py33-scipy problem

As the message says, you need to select a Fortran variant. You have not.
You can see this from the fact that the file trying to be fetched is
py33-scipy-0.16.1_0.darwin_13.x86_64.tbz2 not
py33-scipy-0.16.1_0+gcc48.darwin_13.x86_64.tbz2. Yes, you had py33-scipy
+gcc48 installed previously, and macports will try to use the same variants
you had selected before when upgrading. However, there is no longer a
variant +gcc48 (as below). Therefore, you must choose one of the four
currently existing Fortran variants. e.g. sudo port install py33-scipy


$ port info py33-scipy
py33-scipy @0.16.1 (python)
