I was under the impression that all occurrences of /Applications/ 
DarwinPorts were meant to have been replaced with /Applications/ 
MacPorts. There was a message on this list some months (?) ago that  
someone was going to do that. But I'm having trouble locating the  
exact message now. Perhaps the person who was going to do that could  
comment on this.

Perhaps it has been done and you just haven't upgraded that software  
since then? You could try syncing your ports tree and then forcing an  
upgrade of abiword (even if it doesn't think one is necessary) to see  
if it now goes into the MacPorts directory instead of the deprecated  
DarwinPorts directory.
