My 2012 MacBook Air (11", i7 2GHz 8GB RAM) crashed and I had to erase the SSD and re-install macOS High Sierra with the Internet Recovery Mode tools. Once I had the working OS, I used the Migration Assistant to rebuild my system from a Time Machine backup. Upon restoring my system, I ended up with MacPorts as a User. I am at a loss to understand why this happened and am wondering if I should get rid of it?
$ port installed

I had originally started this computer with macOS Mountain Lion. I'd installed MacPorts when using macOS Sierra. Prior to the crash I had macOS High Sierra 10.13.3 (and that is what I have now).
As I recall, I've only used MacPorts ever to install one thing - I think it was Valgrind (which is not functional in High Sierra - so I don't need it). Of note - there is not a "MacPorts" User that I can login with or see in the Sys Prefs >>> Users & Groups:
...but there is a "macports" directory in
Any ideas on why Migration Assistant would create a MacPorts user? Thought on how to and whether or not to nuke it (and any other MacPorts components?)
I removed MacPorts per their instructions: https://guide.macports.org/chunked/installing.macports.uninstalling.html
...and I removed /opt/local/bin from my $PATH, then deleted /Users/MacPorts.
Upon rebooting, MacPorts is still a User that shows up in the login screen. Also I get the following from
$ dscl . list /Users | grep -v '^_'
How do I get rid of this?
