bingo! that did the trick. thanks a lot. however, I am _rather_ sure that this package used to be 
installed before the upgrade (and I am 100% sure that my document compiled without problems at that 
time so it seems the package _was_ definitely installed). so the question is what happened?

would `port upgrade texlive' throw out an old texlive-latex-extra rather than upgrading (or 
ignoring) it? it shouldn't do that but could it?

best regards,
