I don't see why it would. That ticket relates to the situation when  
you have multiple copies of a port installed with the same version  
but different variants, and you try to upgrade that port to a new  
version, and when trying to deactivate the old version MacPorts gets  
confused and tries to deactivate the version that wasn't active  
instead of the one which was.

Does that apply to you? If so, you can manually deactivate and  
activate the appropriate ports. And to avoid the bug, uninstall  
unnecessary ports so that you have only one copy of a particular  
version of a port installed. (Decide which set of variants you want,  
and uninstall the others.)
