Comment (by RJVB):

 Dependencies of Lame may have been updated which could lead to problems,
 but in principle those should have been signalled by `port -v rev-

 The best I can suggest is
 1) Look in the audacity log (Help/Diagnostics/Show log) for more
 information why Lame fails to load
 2) Generate the support data from that same submenu, and see if that
 contains a clue
 3) Use the Download feature for Lame and point Audacity to that library.

 Something else you can try is
 > sudo port deactivate -f audacity lame
 > sudo port activate lame audacity
