I'm going to Cc this to macports-users again since we have another user reporting the same issue today who might be interested.

Have you tried the "Lost Password" or "Register" buttons at the top right of the Trac page?

If that's true, then that's odd, since the port should not look in the directory osx64 unless the build_arch is x86_64 or ppc64. Are you sure build_arch is set to i386, or does that line in macports.conf begin with a "#" meaning it is commented out?

Please clean first, then run with the debug flag.

sudo port clean -d lp_solve
sudo port -d install lp_solve 2>&1 | tee ~/Desktop/lp_solve.txt

The file lp_solve.txt on your desktop will then contain the full log and can be attached to a ticket.
