    Try grabbing the newest version of MacPorts from SVN.

    In Terminal, type:
    svn co
    cd base
    sudo make install
    sudo /opt/local/bin/port -v selfupdate
    Remember to add /opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin to your PATH.

    checking whether tclsh was compiled with threads... no
    configure: error: tcl wasn't compiled with threads enabled

    I am getting error on last two lines when i use ./configure ....I am unable to figure out what this means

    Do you have the Developer tools installed? You won't be able to compile anything otherwise.

    Go to to sign up for a free account and download XCode 3
