Maybe it's not really MacPorts wanting to install them on `port  
did you run this command in the Portfile directory?
If that's what you've done, `port upgrade` ignore the Portfile in the  
current directory, so the one getting sourced by MacPorts is the one  
in the rsync tree, the one which depends on Xft2 and xrender.
