I did not solve this problem yet, too. I tried to:

cd /opt/local/var/macports/sources/rsync.macports.org/release/ports/

and then:

sudo portindex

...in order to get a proper PortIndex, but that did not help.

Some days ago I changed the Portfile of an old version of pwm  
manually, but unfortunatly by pasting the text I added two lines of  
the mail to which the Portfile was attached, so that the Portfile was  
corrupted (I don't know anything about tcl). Later I uninstalled the  
old pwm-version with the force-option "-f". The new version works  
fine, by the way. But it may be that since that time something is  
inconsistent in my port system. "Sudo port selfupdate" does not help.

Currently I read the Macports-Documentation at http://geeklair.net/ 
new_macports_guide/ (when ever I have time) to fix the problem.
