Theres no reason to wait for an official installer, the build from source route works just fine, and once complete gives you functionally as good a macports installation as the installer does. If you go this route, there is also no need to reinstall once the official installer is out.

Also, any ports you install, regardless of how you installed macports, and perfectly valid and do not need reinstalling if you subsequently change (or e.g. update at some later time) your macports installation.

Cheers Chris
