I do not know whether it finished installing or not, but I do know that it wouldn't start up until about 1.5 hours later. My school's IT help desk worked on it and did not find the problem but 20 minutes later I turned the computer on and it worked. Is this normal or should I worry about something?

I don't see how the crash or the inability to power on could have been related to MacPorts.

To discover whether MacPorts finished installing tsocks, type "port installed" into the terminal and see if tsocks is listed.
