I am following the first set of instructions for Mac OS X on this website: Installing V8 on Mac OS X. But, when I try running sudo port install scons subversion I get the following error:

Warning: No index(es) found! Have you synced your source indexes? Error: Port scons not found Before reporting a bug, first run the command again with the -d flag to get complete output.

Any advice on how to help me with this would be greatly appreciated. I am very inept with Terminal.

Looks like you're using MacPorts. In that case, you must first update the ports directory by issuing the command

sudo port selfupdate

After that, you should be able to install the scons and subversion ports. Check out the Using MacPorts guide for more help.
