With Ryan's help this should be possible, because he is a MacPorts professional 
and I am only a user.

For me one question is important: why is configure producing different results 
in two different environments? In my private environment it seems to find the 
proper depth while in MacPorts' environment it has to run the directory tree 
test. In the latter it runs as root…

One proposal I made to MacPorts was to make configure accept the first failure 
and then try again with a directory name that is one byte or character longer. 
This worked kind of manually (by patching the configure script appropriately 
before the MacPorts build process starts).



When in doubt, use brute force.
