When I talk about removing macports, I mean removing traces of it from
your environment. I don't know macports, but fink did install
everything (and really everything into a dedicated non-system
directory. To disable it, it was enough to not source (load) the
shell-file that did setup environment variables in the user's profile.

If macports works similarily, and doesn't mess with system paths -
this method should work as well.
I.e. check your environment variables, especially $PATH for references
to the directories macports uses and eliminate them.

12/13? that result is over a week old - so of no use at all (esp.
since there have been plenty of builds in the meantime)

But yes, some buildslaves focus on master, other focus on the
release-branch, and some build both - but in any case the platform
should be represented with at least one builder in any tree (and for
Mac, this is the case).
