Comparing your output to that on my system, this is the line that  
differs. On mine:

DEBUG: Assembled command: 'cd "/opt/local/var/db/dports/build/ 
&& CPPFLAGS="-I/opt/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/opt/local/lib" ./ 
configure --prefix=/opt/local --with-zlib=/opt/local'
cd builds/unix; ./configure --prefix=/opt/local --with-zlib=/opt/local

The path to the work area is different because I have my ports tree  
in a Subversion working copy in my home directory, but that shouldn't  
matter. What's interesting is that on my machine it configures the  
unix build by running "cd builds/unix; ./configure" which works, but  
yours runs "./builds/unix/configure" which apparently doesn't work. I  
don't know why yours does that, however.

The other difference on my system is that the configure script finds / 
opt/local/bin/sed while yours finds /usr/bin/sed. On my system, I had  
installed the gsed port, which installs /opt/local/bin/gnused, and I  
had manually installed a symlink to that at /opt/local/bin/sed. But  
even if I remove that symlink, the freetype port installs just fine.

Other difference: I have 10.4.9 now, but that shouldn't matter  
either; I first built freetype 2.1.10 several versions of Mac OS X ago.

You do have the latest version of Xcode? 2.4.1?

You are using gcc 4.0.1, aren't you? You haven't used gcc_select to  
select an earlier version of gcc?

Have you installed a different make? My make is the one Apple  
provides in /usr/bin/make. What does "which make" say for you? What  
about "make --version"? Mine's 3.80.
