    while executing
"ui_debug "sw_vers exists but running it failed: $result""
    invoked from within
"try -pass_signal {
            set macosx_version [exec /usr/bin/sw_vers -productVersion | cut -f1,2 -d.]
        } catch {*} {
            ui_debug "..."
    (procedure "mportinit" line 56)
    invoked from within
