There are migration instructions: https://trac.macports.org/wiki/Migration But in some cases (depending on your exact circumstances) MacPorts only guarantees "compatibility" for one year. It may work longer, but we certainly don't test what happens with upgrades after five years. I don't know how to explain your particular problem and didn't try to look at the sources (it's not even clear to me why MacPorts is being built from source rather than fetched from the binary archive), but you probably upgraded a bunch of OSes during those five years. You'll get least headaches by uninstalling all ports, removing MacPorts and doing a clean install. Mojca
