I ran `sudo port -d selfupdate` and all seemed to go well.
I edited macports.conf to change to sqlite then ran `sudo port installed`
I next ran `sudo port outdated` to find two ports needing updating.
I ran `sudo port upgrade outdated` and gettext and libtool were updated.

After a bit of time, all was updated, and it seems to work well.  I thought I would report a successful update case.  It went smoothly.
