[Discuss-gnuradio] MacPorts for Intel - newbie question

Hi (from a newbie here to Gnu Radio),

Just trying to wet my feet in all this… trying to build the software on a new Intel Core 2 Duo MacBook with OSX 10.4.9…

Was following the notes from Jon Jacky & Michael Dickens about OSX installations…
Started the pre-requisites …
Installed Xcode 2.4.1.
Installed Subversion.
Installed MacPorts as suggested in Jon's notes from a DarwinPorts-1.0.dmg but when I went to update it using
        sudo port -d selfupdate
I got the message:
        Failed to initialize ports system, no suitable image found.  Did find:
        /opt/local/share/darwinports/Tcl/pextlib1.0/Pextlib.dylib: mach-o, but wrong architecture
which even to a limited tech like me suggests it was expecting PPC ?

I also tried the more detailed description in Michael's document using the script dp_inst.csh on page 3 but got the same errors, presumably for the same reason.

Of course without MacPorts working, I am not likely to get much further with my GR install!   Sorry to ask for such basic help but would appreciate any pointers either on or off list.
