problem selfupdating old (pre 1.2) darwinports

I'm trying to selfupdate an antique version of darwinports, and when I do
sudo port -d selfupdate
I get an error:
Selfupdate failed: couldn't open
no such file or directory
this is understandable, because my version of darwinports is antique on
this machine (I (badly, very badly) haven't touched it for a long time)
and as the comment for revision
http://trac.macosforge.org/projects/macports/changeset/15358 states the
dp_version file has moved. If I duplicate from base/config/dp_version to
base/dp_version, then the sync will remove it...
clearly I just need to make install (or something similar - I'm bit
vague on such authentic unixness) for the actual port command itself
(without syncing and checking versions and so on. but not sure how/where
to do this. Alternatively I could reinstall, but don't want the new
darwinports to forget about the state of my existing ports...
(also, perhaps relevant? I was running panther, but have upgraded to tiger recently, and wondered if that might have any influence on the matter?)
