This is unnecessary. You should install python_select instead and use it. It does a cleaner job.

As for gdal, you're right: the current Portfile does not activate the swig glue, so nothing gets installed in site-packages. I'll see what's going on. Meanwhile, I've successfully updated to 1.7.2, which requires only bumping the version and the related checksums.
