Hi, I had to rearrange the user accounts on my iMac (10.6.8) and need to re-instal WINE from the new admin account since the original one got mucked up (for one thing, the .wine directory got deleted which is in user space). It's objecting to the activation of python27:

--->  Activating python27 @2.7.2_0+universal
Error: Target org.macports.activate returned: Image error: /Applications/MacPorts/Python 2.7/Build Applet.app/Contents/Info.plist already exists and does not belong to a registered port.  Unable to activate port python27. Use 'port -f activate python27' to force the activation.

John-Sankeys-iMac:~ xadmin$ port -f activate python27
Error: Insufficient privileges to write to MacPorts install prefix.

Note: the account xadmin DOES have admin privileges; for the moment so does the account WINE was installed under first, but that account needs to revert to standard (non-admin).

How can I best recover from this mess?
