just subscribed to the list, and just reactivated an old Powerbook G4,
only beacuse I noticed that Macports is around (usually I'm a Gentoo
Linux user with only few *BSD background, so don't mind me stupid

Installing Ports on Sorbet Leopard went fine, but as everything (except
App packages) is installed in /var/local, how is it possible to provide
some of the system packages with fresh frameworks, most important, SSL?
I'd need that for Mail (even TenFourBird doesn't work) and a working

Is there a good guideline on how to get all that running? Its somehow

Thanks in advabce && best regards
