I found this problem described here:
They say it can be caused by having a previous version installed. So

sudo port deactivate fontforge
sudo port clean fontforge
sudo port install fontforge

This is just how MacPorts works today. Every time a dependency is
encountered while upgrading a list of ports, it will try to build
that dependency, even if it has already tried and failed before.
