[metapost] mpost does not work

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to use mpost to create a figure. I installed the texlive  
distribution through MacPorts, and now everytime I try to use the  
program it gives me this:

aaragon@~/Desktop/gfem TeX/trunk/gnuplot/inclusion$mpost  
This is MetaPost, Version 0.993 (Web2C 7.5.6)
(Fatal mem file error; I'm stymied)

I did some research and I found out that it may be a configuration  
problem, but I have no idea of what to change in my configuration  
file, since it looks quite different from what I've seen online. Does  
anyone have an idea of what's going on?

Thank you all,
