I actually do not understand what this command performs (looks like it  
does nothing) and how it can lead to building xorg-server-devel  
@… And in my home directory I don't have a subdirectory src/ 

I don't want to build some X server that installs somewhere on my  
PowerBook G4 and can't be uninstalled. So I decided to fetch from http://trac.macports.org/changeset/132694 
  the corresponding Portfile, "install" it in   /opt/local/var/ 
ports/x11/xorg-server-devel, and see whether port can handle this. It  
can't, out of a good reason: there does not seem to exist an archive  
for the xorg-server(-devel) sources. How can I get these?
