On Snow Leopard I did a clean install of macports 2.0.0.

Then the following:

I get the following error when I try to "sudo port mdmg ImageMgick"

Resolution: fixed

Version: 1.9.99

Not much to go on here, but I would guess your configured macportsuser doesn't exist. There's a fallback in svn already.

Is there a verbose mode I can run it with to give you more data. When you say there is a fallback in svn. Are you saying I need to install directly from the svn instead of the binary dmg for macports 2.0.0?

Per the man page:

     -v       verbose mode (generate verbose messages)

     -d       debug mode (generate debugging messages, implies -v)

Installing from the tip of the release_2_0 branch would be one way to fix this, yes. The other would be to create the user specified in macports.conf (or change it to one that does exist).
