Thanks ... I think the 'rehash' command does help a bit... at least now, when I type 'nmap', I can see the help manual (before this, there was just error msg). However, now, when I type 'nmap', (where is the PC that I wanted to scan) ... I got the message ... 

'Limiting closed port RST response from 283 to 200 packets/sec'

May I know how do I get nmap to scan the computer?

Have you tried running "rehash" after the install? If you're using

[t]csh this is nessesary to make the shell discover new commands.

You only need to do "make install clean" in ports/security/nmap, not

in local/bin/nmap.
