Thanks Steve. The problem turned out to be that I had run
open -a Automator ~/Library/Services/ClamavScanIt.workflow && osascript -e 'quit app "Automator"'
from someplace other than my home directory. The copy command worked, but the workflow didn't. I think port commands do the same thing (not run complaining about lack of existence or permissions) when I don't pay attention and try to run from somewhere like my homework assignments folder. Remembering to do cd and then running the open worked fine.

Nothing obvious happened when I did so I don't actually know if it's working. Did the command actually fail? Why is it complaining about the non-existence of a directory which is very much alive and well?
