In my opinion it is MacPorts that cannot delete the tree. It works to perform 
this manually. When I can do it, why is port failing? Maybe it sets other 
limits, or inherits them from Tcl.

The problem seems to be different on very ancient and peculiar Tiger where one 
can create directory trees much longer than (in theory) allowed that even 
manual rm fails (so that one has to move sub-trees away to somewhere else to be 
able to delete the whole tree finally, in portions).

simple mnemonic commands.
