Ahh…that helps greatly, thank you!

I notice that most, or even all, of the commands given it the “2.2.3 Git install” directions at https://guide.macports.org/#installing.macports.git <https://guide.macports.org/#installing.macports.git> require that I use “sudo”, even though I’m on an admin account. For example, I had to do:

	sudo mkdir -p /iopt/mports


	sudo ./configure —enable-readline
	sudo make

whereas the only commands listed in those directions indicate the need for sudo only in “sudo make install”.

Am I doing something wrong?
