If you're talking about interactive mode, readline support is not
enabled when selfupdating to a new version, see
<> and

You can get it back by installing from the dmg, or by building from
source manually and passing --enable-readline to configure.

If you mean port command completion in bash via the bash-completion
port, I don't know why it would have stopped working.
