David, I'm Cc'ing the macports-users mailing list, which is where any future discussion about this or any other port should occur.

You mean MacPorts. The project changed names years ago.

That means another MacPorts process is currently using whatever directory it said. If you've already restarted your computer and you're sure you have no other "port" commands running and you still get that message, then the lock is stale and you can remove it by hand. I'm not sure offhand exactly how or where the lock is stored. If you can't work it out let us know; I'm sure someone around here knows.
