What I said was:


Joshua posted an installer package of MacPorts 2.4.1 for High Sierra today, but I recommend you wait until MacPorts 2.4.2 is released because it will fix a High Sierra-specific bug we found today:


The buildbot has been busy building packages but is far from done. We have about 20,000 ports in MacPorts. So far we have packages for about 3,500 of them for High Sierra, compared with about 13,000 for Sierra and 15,500 for El Capitan. Which is why if you start using MacPorts on High Sierra now, you'll be more likely than on previous systems to encounter ports that haven't been built by our buildbot yet, and which your system will therefore have to build from source itself.
