The lack of '>' on the quoted lines is better for this response, and
there may not be a lot you can do about breaking threads short of
changing your mail client (which I would strongly advise if you are
going to be posting to these lists very much), but the fact that you are
still top-posting is still bad - and that has nothing to do with your

Either remove the version which is installed in /opt/local/bin/
(renaming it would also work), or change your PATH environment variable
so that /usr/local/bin/ is listed before /opt/local/bin/. (How to do the
