Some possible answers from the issue tracker:

"scrollkeeper support is fundamentally broken" in MacPorts.


Use "sudo port -f install <port>". "There are a number of ports that  
trigger scrollkeeper-update. Hunting them down and fixing them seems  
to be a never-ending task. The above command should get you through  
that problem without having to wait on the port to be fixed."
