Hi Taylor,

Sorry that you are experiencing pain with installing PyMVPA on a
proprietary OS.  Unfortunately we do not have Snow Leopard available to
troubleshoot installation, so I am suggesting either

1. check macports bug tracking to find issues alike e.g.
https://svn.macports.org/ticket/23859 or file  a new issue.
Whenever filing a new issue or commenting on existing include more
information around the failure point -- may be preceeding lines provide
more clues

2. Just forget about macports, install Debian virtual machine with
PyMVPA (and other 80000 packages) available to you within 1-20 seconds
depending on your bandwidth (Debian is binary distribution, so no
waiting of ours for things to build is necessary).  For instructions and
initial NeuroDebian-powered Debian virtual machine image see:
