I think your idea is a fine one. For even if Mike has a lifetime etc etc he is not a unix expert since the concepts of path, which or find are somewhat alien to him.

Does Macports cater to the OSS unix folk or to the point-n-click crowd?
I like it as it is and would hate to see pointy-clicky accomodation so I think any of the standard
“Dummies guide to unix”
would go a long way to solving the problem without macport folk needing to create one. I think that once you are skilled enough to understand enough, the task of writing a guide becomes very boring and endlessly prone to leaving out a crucial step because it is so obvious. EG I write installation howtos for co-workers. How often I’ve had to re-write because I assume the obvious (when Jack got out of the botomless pit) ie <dot> and <dot><dot> and many more
