It's not good that you have a darwin_8 variant selected on Leopard
(which is darwin 9). This is likely a result of upgrading from Tiger or
migrating from an older machine which was running Tiger.

You should first install MacPorts again from the current (1.7.1) Leopard
dmg, to make sure you have the right version for your OS. Then you need
to rebuild your ports with the right platform variants. It's safest to
start fresh when you change OS versions, by recording the ports you have
installed, uninstalling them all, and installing them again.
