Do your boxes run an OS that is supposed to ship in October? I'm just  
trying to find a difference between your boxes and those I just tried  
to livecheck squeak on. In addition to my development machine, I  
successfully livechecked squeak on two 10.4 x86 boxes.

More seriously, I think the problem may come from the configuration  
files in /opt/local/etc/ports/. James changed their parsing recently,  
and the error you get looks like a parsing error.

Could you please paste the output of:

diff base/doc/ports.conf /opt/local/etc/ports/ports.conf.in
diff base/doc/sources.conf /opt/local/etc/ports/sources.conf
diff base/doc/variants.conf  /opt/local/etc/ports/variants.conf
