Fontconfig broken

I seem to have an odd problem of a port that is "sort of installed and  
sort of not".
I see that gd2 is outdated, so I did a port sync and port upgrade  

At which point I got this:
Error: No port fontconfig found.
Error: Dependency 'fontconfig' not found.
Error: Unable to upgrade port: 1

If I try to look for the port I get this:
 >port info fontconfig
Error: Port fontconfig not found

But if I do this:
 >port installed fontconfig
The following ports are currently installed:
   fontconfig @2.6.0_1+macosx
   fontconfig @2.6.0_2+macosx (active)

I see that I actually have the port installed and active.
So it seems that it is there, but macports can not find it.  Something  
is clearly broken.

Any idea what, or what I can do about it?
