Comment (by kencu):

 Yes, that is why you're not getting the binaries. Please see:
 LibcxxOnOlderSystems#LionandMountainLion for what you should do, but
 basically you just want a fully default macports.conf now, assuming you're
 using the usual default prefix of /opt/local.

 You may have an issue with the "delete_la_files" section I'm afraid, as
 that changed in an important, software-breaking way as of MacPorts 2.6. I
 am not an expert on that issue, but it seems to be something Josh and Ryan
 were quite worried about.

 Your macports.conf is from 2014. Some things have changed over the years.
 You might consider a "spring cleaning". The instructions here
 [wiki:Migration] show you a way to put out a text file with a list of all
 your currently-installed software.

 You would then either {{{sudo port -f uninistall installed}}} and then
 reinstall them all with the instructions in Migration, or, for a "deep
 clean", just totally uninstall MacPorts (after you have your ports list
 saved) -- there is yet another WIKI page that tells you how to totally
 uninstall MacPorts), and install a new version of MacPorts fresh, and then
 reinstall all your ports from that text file.
