I'm a total newbie to PyMVPA/Python/MacPorts, so I apologize in advance if the solution to the problem I'm having is trivial!

The following error message error appears when I run

> sudo env http_proxy=proxy:<port number> port install py26-pymvpa +scipy +pynifti +hcluster +libsvm + matplotlib +pywavelet

--->  Computing dependencies for py26-pymvpa
--->  Fetching archive for py26-pymvpa
--->  Fetching py26-pymvpa
Error: Target org.macports.fetch returned: Git checkout failed
Log for py26-pymvpa is at: /opt/local/var/macports/logs/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_www.macports.org_files_ports_python_py26-pymvpa/main.log
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.
To report a bug, see <http://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets>

I believe the relevant part of the file main.log is as follows:

I looked for posts reporting similar errors but I couldn't find anything quite like -- another reason to believe that I'm doing something very wrong!

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much for your time.
