It is easy when you know the signs. Anyway, apart from lout, I have completed my MacPorts installation. Surprisingly, I got the following error for lout.

:error:destroot Failed to destroot lout: command execution failed

I thought I was onto a winner here when I saw ‘destroot’. It turned out that there was nothing in the ProblemHotlist and, when I searched for tickets containing ‘lout’, there was none for lout so I’m a bit deflated now.

Thanks for your input, Ryan.
