I am trying to install aquaterm via macports. I run

 sudo port install aquaterm

This gives back an error:

 --->  Building aquaterm
 Error: for port aquaterm returned: command execution failed
 Please see the log file for port aquaterm for details:      
 To report a bug, follow the instructions in the guide:
 Error: Processing of port aquaterm failed

In the log file I see:

:info:build You have not agreed to the Xcode license agreements, please run
'xcodebuild -license' (for user-level acceptance) or 'sudo xcodebuild -license'
 (for system-wide acceptance) from within a Terminal window to review and agree 
to the Xcode license agreements.

However, when I run

sudo xcodebuild -license

I receive this message:

xcodebuild: error: invalid option '-license'

I did not find anything useful on this error on internet. Did anybody see this error before? Do I need to run xcodebuild in a specific directory?

I am running Mac Os X 10.8.2 and Xcode 4.5.1.

Did you install the command line utilities from within Xcode? – patrix Oct 31 '12 at 19:07
@patrix I am not sure how I installed them. How can I reinstall them from within Xcode? – Enzo Nov 9 '12 at 19:08
