Sure, texlive won't uninstall because it is not yet installed.  
MacPorts hasn't even begun to deal with the texlive port yet. It's  
still dealing with texlive's dependencies and is stuck at the staging  
phase of the texlive_texmf-full port.

"sudo port -f install texlive_texmf-full" might work. But I would  
"sudo port clean --work texlive_texmf-full" and then "sudo port  
install texlive" again.
