Uninstall Fink and all software installed with it. It is not supported to have software installed by both MacPorts and Fink at the same time. Use one package manager or the other, not both simultaneously.

I don't know that uninstalling Fink will instantly fix this particular problem for you, but it's a necessary first step.
