    Thanks much! I am not exactly sure how that port got in this state 
either, but I *did* manually download just the port for the 
DarwinStreamingServer and plunk into my port tree, so I know I am not 
following protocol ;-) My install did indeed start with ports and src 
installed (I have a hosted server where they do the initial install). I 
will use CVSUP and properly get my ports in order before I bug you guys
