I don't have an answer for your question, but I just want to remind you that MacPorts has moved away from macOS forge, and our list addresses have changed from lists.macosforge.org to lists.macports.org; please update any email addresses that may be in your address book or email program's saved addresses. Your message was redirected to the new list, and I received it, but users whose email providers have more restrictive security settings can't receive them, so it's important to address messages to the new list initially.
