Hi everybody,

Thank you so very much for all the helpful advice and suggestions.  I live in
Australia, so it is TV veg-out time and nearly bedtime.  I will work through
all your replies in detail in the morning.

Heh, heh!  Someone else suggested that and it was also one of the first things I
thought of.  But guess what.  I have TimeMachine, but my settings exclude
backing up /opt/local and several other build/object-code areas, on the basis that
they are large and the wherewithal to re-create them is easily available elsewhere.
in source-code directories, MacPorts servers, etc.

Well, it is the first time in six years I have been caught out… :-(  Mind you, I should
have upgraded my OSX long ago and none of this would have happened… :-(
