It looks like /usr/local/bin/port is from an older version of MacPorts (you shouldn't install into /usr/local anyway). Thus, it's trying to use the 1.8.0 functionality and failing due to different semantics. Remove /usr/local/bin/port (and any other junk in /usr/local), reinstall MacPorts if necessary...
