This looks like a local problem on your machines. Some files exist that shouldn't be there. Try to run sudo rm -rf /Applications/MacPorts/AquaTerm.app/ and then try to install/activate aquaterm again. Alternatively do sudo port -f activate aquaterm as suggested. How did you uninstall MacPorts during migration? Just "sudo rm -rf /opt/local"? Or did you actually do "sudo port deactivate active" or "sudo port uninstall active"? If you just removed the contents of "/opt/local" without uninstalling or deactivating old ports, you might run into the same problem with other ports that install files outside of $prefix. In that case I would suggest you to run "sudo port deactivate active", then "rm -rf /Applications/MacPorts" and potentially clean up a few more places (I have no clue which ones). You might have to force install other ports if you didn't properly uninstall the ports from earlier.
