    2) Then in terminal i ran below command.
    sudo port install wine
    3) Then i got below error.

    ---> Configuring expat
    Error: Target org.macports.configure returned: configure failure: shell command " cd "/opt/local/var/macports/build/ _release_ports_textproc_expat/work/expat-2.0.1" && ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --mandir=/opt/local/share/man " returned error 77

    What do you need WINE for? Even if you get WINE installed correctly it can be troublesome. If you need to run certain Windows programs the best solution may be to use Parallels or Fusion.

    But, if you really want or need to install WINE, follow these directions:

    I love how everyone hates on WINE, lol. I use it almost everyday to run little stupid .exe's, installing and maintaing a Windows system via Parallels etc is too much of a hassle.

    Anyway ... do you have your $PATH set correctly? If it is looking for libraries and such that MacPorts uses and your $PATH isn't set correctly it will fail. You obviously have the Developer Tools installed with GCC, since it finds it, but I can't think of why it wouldn't be able to create an executable.

    For parallels we need to have windows installed and i don't have.

    In the terminal I first set the path like this.

    echo export PATH=\$PATH:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin$'\n'export MANPATH=\$MANPATH:/opt/local/man | sudo tee -a /etc/profile

    and the result after entering the admin password is

    export PATH=$PATH:/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin
    export MANPATH=$MANPATH:/opt/local/man

    So, i guess all the path are set correctly? Is it of some help?
