Unfortunately, something seems to have corrupted the installation, as when I do a sudo port command, I now get the message command not found.  I figure it'd be best to uninstall then reinstall MacPorts, but the directions said to email this group first and see what you think.  Please advise.

This doesn't sound like a corrupted installation. Either your shell is
misconfigured, with /opt/local/bin missing from the PATH environment
variable, or the file /opt/local/bin/port has gone missing (check with ls).
