Download, Unpack and Install Macports

Run the following commands as sudoed root
sudo su -

curl -o MacPorts-2.5.3.tar.gz
tar zxf MacPorts-2.5.3.tar.gz
cd MacPorts-2.5.3
./configure --prefix=/opt/casa/02 --with-macports-user=root --with-applications-dir=/opt/casa/02/Applications
make install

Configure Environment

This will make the port command run with the -s flag, which will compile all of the ports from the source.

sudo su -
mkdir /var/root/bin
touch ~/.profile
chmod 700 ~/.profile
Create file /var/root/bin/port and add the following contents.
/opt/casa/02/bin/port -N -s $*
Make the file executable
 chmod 755 /var/root/bin/port
Add the following in the .profile
export PATH=/opt/casa/02/bin:$PATH
# Required for the latest version of Qt4 port
export PATH=/opt/casa/02/libexec/qt4/bin:$PATH
# Port binaries
export PATH=/var/root/bin/:$PATH
Run the following commands.
. ~/.profile
type port
# This should return
# /var/root/bin/port

Fetch Port Overlay

cd /opt/casa
git clone
ln -s /opt/casa/casa-macports/ports /opt/casa/ports
scp <username> /opt/casa/ports/graphics/pgplot/files

Configure MacPorts Source

echo 'file:///opt/casa/ports [nosync]' > /opt/casa/02/etc/macports/sources.conf
echo 'rsync:// [default]' >> /opt/casa/02/etc/macports/sources.conf

Verify that the sources.conf looks correct:

bash-3.2# cat /opt/casa/02/etc/macports/sources.conf
file:///opt/casa/ports [nosync]
rsync:// [default]

Update MacPorts

port selfupdate

GDB Configuration
During the installation you will get this message:

You will need to make sure /System/Library/LaunchDaemons/ has the '-p' option, e.g.
Due to kernel caching, you usually need to restart Mac OS X for this option to effect.

You will have to disable SIP to do the above steps. As an alternative you can do the following:

Create certificate to sign ggdb

Open /Applications/Utilities/Keychain access
In the top menu, go to "Keychain Access" and select Certificate Assistant
Select "Create a certificate"
    Name: gdb-cert
    Identity Type: Self Signed root
    Certificate Type: Code Signing
Select "Let me override defaults"
Click continue
Click continue on the pop-up
Click continue
In the personal information, select values as you wish and click continue
Click continue
Click continue
Click continue on the "Key Usage Extension" screen
Verify that the Extended Key Usage Extension is set to "Code Signing" and click continue
Click continue
Click continue
In the "Specify a Location For The Certificate" screen select System and click continue
Select System in the Keychains pane and right click on the "gdb-cert"
Click on the triangle next to "Trust" to expand the options
In the "When using this certificate select "Always trust"
Click on the red "x" on the left top corner of the window. 
Provide your password
Open a terminal and enter 
"codesign -f -s gdb-cert /opt/casa/02/bin/ggdb"
Restart your machine

Add ports to your path (as root and and as the user)

Include the following line in the .profile file in your home directory
export PATH=/opt/casa/02/libexec/qt4/bin:/opt/casa/02/bin:$PATH
