'port selfupdate' does the same thing as 'port sync' as well as updating
the base code if needed. So you could have just synced, but you might as
well always run selfupdate just in case base is updated.

cran.au.r-project.org doesn't appear to exist. I'd guess that your ISP
has one of those obnoxious, standards-violating DNS servers that
redirects nonexistent hosts to an ad page.
I've removed that mirror from the port, so if you sync about 30 minutes
after the time of this message, you should be able to fetch R. You'll
want to `sudo port clean --all R` first, to get rid of the bad download.
