    sudo port select --set postgresql postgresql10
you'll have a working "psql" symlink to that binary.

This is never the correct criterium. You don't get a separate package
for each binary. It's pretty common to have multiple binaries in the
same package. (But yes, I admit that I often miss "MacPorts, please
tell me in which package I can find file X.")

Installing Linux to get psql running is an equally legitimate
suggestion, but it doesn't mean that you cannot run it on MacPorts,
and in any case it doesn't mean that each StackOverflow answer is
