For the records: with respect to the weird behaviour of py-numpy on  
my system I did solve it the following way:

   sudo port contents py-numpy
did not show any files for that port, I simply went ahead and deleted  
the receipt for py-numpy:
   sudo mv /opt/local/var/db/dports/receipts/py-numpy /tmp/numpy- 
This seemed to have done the trick, as I could then install py-numpy  
without any problems
