   I tried to install Cairo graphics

   and I need to install Macports.

   I tried to install Macports on my Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6, and type "sudo
port install cairo", but it did not respond. I haven't seen any file name
or app called Macports, but one file called "port" which is located at


   How should I do it?
