I accidently wrote a messed up script that deleted bin,      etc, and include from my /opt/local directory. I'm running OS X leopard. Is there a way I can restore what I lost and have no damage without having to restore the OS?

Thanks
BRMacBook:local user$ ls
Library	bin	etc	include	lib	libexec	man	sbin	share	src	var	www
 
//   ....
 
BRMacBook:local user$ ls
Library	lib	libexec	man	sbin	share	src	var	www

/opt/local is no standard OS X, most likely a port installation, hence you can safely install port again without any harm to OS X
