port install error rb-rubygems -- can't read "categories"

Description

I received the following error message attempting to install rb-rubygems:

Steve$ sudo port install rb-rubygems rb-termios
Password:
--->  Fetching rb-rubygems
--->  Verifying checksum(s) for rb-rubygems
--->  Extracting rb-rubygems
--->  Applying patches to rb-rubygems
--->  Configuring rb-rubygems

--->  Staging rb-rubygems into destroot
--->  Installing rb-rubygems 1.1.1_2

Error: Target org.macports.install returned: can't read "categories": no such variable
Error: Status 1 encountered during processing.

In spite of much experimentation, including wiping /opt/local completely on my development machine and deleting the files recommended in the macports wiki for an absolutely clean install, I keep receiving the same error. This, after my latest install attempt

Steve$ sudo port install rb-rubygems

Is changeset 37668 related to this? "contains Message: Fixed categories"

I am stumped and would greatly appreciate any assistance.
