The log says:

couldn't open "/opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_devel_automake/automake/work/.macports.automake.state": permission denied

Why is permission denied? Are you sure you're using sudo? If so, can you try running sudo port clean automake, and, if it's still present, manually removing the symlink /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_devel_automake/automake/work, and then trying again?

I do not know why permission is denied. I'm curious what permissions are required and how to determine if they have been granted. I also want to know how to grant them. I have been able to successfully complete two other ports (cabextract and unzip). I will complete the instructions you have provided and report back with the outcome.

Thanks.

I also don't know why permission was denied on your system. You can try removing the directory /opt/local/var/macports/build/_opt_local_var_macports_sources_rsync.macports.org_release_tarballs_ports_devel_automake, and then trying again.
