The instructions are right there. They begin with:
 	If you haven't already installed Darwin Ports, you can find
 	easy instructions for doing so at the main Darwin Ports page.
And continue with:
 	Once Darwin Ports has been installed, in a terminal window and
 	while online, type the following and hit return:
 		%  cd /opt/local/bin/portslocation/dports/pdfbox
 		%  sudo port install pdfbox
 	You will then be prompted for your root password, which you
 	should enter. You may have to wait for a few minutes while the
 	software is retrieved from the network and installed for you.

Did you follow these instructions? What happened? What is unclear?
