Yup, the guide has not been updated for this change, which came about with Registry 2.0, which is the first that can record negative variants. Today, users who install MacPorts 1.9.x from scratch get Regstiry 2.0 whereas users who upgraded from MacPorts 1.8.x or earlier stay with Registry 1.0 (until they modify their macports.conf) (I think? Isn't that right?). With MacPorts 2.0 the old registry goes away at which point all users' registries will be able to remember negative variants.
