This seems to work fine for me. The one problem you may be running into is that 'port search' takes a regex; If you want to search for libc++ from the command line, try something like this:

port search "libc\+\+"

The backslashes need to be escaped for the shell (hence the quotes), and the + needs to be escaped for the regex search (hence the backslashes)
