/opt/local does not exist normally.. its only Macports and nothing else... nothing has been installed in it yet, so its just Macports executables and config files which are already supposed to be all users.

Macports is designed to not be run with sudo anymore... and just like running Wine with sudo, you can really mess things up, and some ports won't even install if you sudo it.
