Hi James, asciidoc is now fixed in macport's git repo.  If you're grabbing
an updated ports list from git (which I highly suggest), you can issue a
"sudo port selfupdate" and it will pick up the revised/updated port list
now.  If you're pulling the ports list down via the tarball (standard
install is to  use the tarball), you'll probably need to wait a while
before trying again.

If you want to swap a default macports install over to using git for the
portslist do the following:

sudo mkdir -p /opt/mports
cd /opt/mports
sudo git clone https://github.com/macports/macports-ports.git

Then open "/opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf" in a text editor. The last
line should look like this:

rsync://rsync.macports.org/macports/release/tarballs/ports.tar [default]

Change it to point to the working copy you checked out:

file:///opt/mports/macports-ports [default]

Then run (this will take a long while as it has to walk through the entire
port tree)

sudo port -d selfupdate
