Port does not uninstall a port correctly when there is case sensitivity involved.
For example. 1) the port is installed as 'MyPort'. (notice the case) 2) you try to uninstall the port with 'port uninstall myport' (notice the all lower case) 3) it says it is uninstalled. but it actually is not. 4) you try to reinstall the port with 'port install MyPort' but this fails, because binaries are still there.
I attached a example Port, it is actually the 'bwm-ng' port (simple program) but named as 'MyPort' Run the steps above to reproduce.
