Hi Yaroslav, thanks for your help!

I tried running 'port install' this morning again but to no avail.

What should I see when entering 'https://github.com/PyMVPA/PyMVPA.git' in a browser? I get a message from the github server saying that "404 This is not he web page you are looking for". I'm starting to think that, because I'm behind a corporate firewall, things are not working as expected... 
Does that make sense?
