This is my first experience with MacPorts. I'm using it to install Git 22.214.171.124.
I noticed during install that it's downloading and installing Perl 5.8.9 on my Snow Leopard Mac which comes pre-bundled with Perl 5.10.0.
Am I missing something or is MacPorts messing with my system?
Edit: As per instructions on ProGit I used the following command to install Git with MacPorts:
$ sudo port install git-core +svn +doc +bash_completion +gitweb
Edit2: in fact its also installing cURL and basically a ton of things that I ALREADY HAVE! Hopefully someone can explain what I've done and how I can back out - assuming I need to.
