Thanks - now it's no longer trying to update to an unsupported version.
For those newly installing the package (whether from source or binary), would it be possible to have (the Portfile?) provide an install-time message warning that there are no further upstream updates expected past 1.11.3? While there can be occasional needs for old versions, people should probably be reminded when they're unsupported, so that they can evaluate the need vs risk of un-patched security issues.
Now that I look beyond habit, I'm not actually sure why I have python 2.6 at all anymore - it is, after all, rather old. The only dependent (even recursively) I have installed from MacPorts is py26-pygtk, and port select --summary shows none for python and python2. I suppose I may have some non-packaged software that's dependent on python 2.6, but I have no idea what that might be - running a massive find-and-grep now to see if there is anything. Although the OS bundled version on my older Snow Leopard system is 2.6.1; maybe I should keep it so I can easily copy something on there over to newer systems, change the #! line, and not worry about any version incompatibilities in a script.
