FYI, selfupdate also does what sync does, so this is redundant.

That's odd, this is the old location, so it seems like the selfupdate/sync
didn't grab the latest.  Try using

$ sudo port -d selfupdate

This will output quite a bit of stuff, you want to watch for something along
the lines of

sent 50740 bytes  received 414170 bytes  29994.19 bytes/sec
total size is 18806023  speedup is 40.45

That means it successfully retrieved files; if you see error messages from
rsync, do you have a firewall in your way that doesn't allow rsync and
perhaps need a proxy?
