Maybe you had selected python3.x with MacPorts before, then you uninstalled
MacPorts without un-selecting python, and now you've installed MacPorts again?
You could remove the /opt/local/etc/select/python/current symlink manually and
try again, though I'm unclear on why it would be complaining that it already
exists; it's normal for it to already exist.
