|Summary||0001631: Install Problem with MacPorts|
When trying to install graphviz from macports:
[[email protected]]$ sudo /opt/local/bin/port install graphviz-devel
---> Fetching graphviz-devel
---> Attempting to fetch graphviz-2.21.20081012.0445.tar.gz from http://www.graphviz.org/pub/graphviz/development/SOURCES/ [^]

The user evidently hasn't updated his ports tree since October 2008 and is thus using port definitions that are vastly outdated. I update the graphviz-devel port in MacPorts approximately weekly. The user is also evidently using MacPorts 1.6 or older; MacPorts 1.7 would have fetched the file from our mirror server.
Thanks for the bug report but your intuition that this is more a concern of Macports is correct. You should contact
the macports-users mailing list. Apparently, your MacPorts is out-of-date.
Thanks also for the kind words. We have considered moving the software to a more modern base, but the churn would
be significant, and we don't have the manpower to do the port along while working on Graphviz and keeping our
