port -v

which I believe is the current version.

I didn't do anything special. octave is installed in /opt/local/bin

ls -Fa /opt/local/bin

gives (along with a lot of other stuff):

doxytag*				octave@
dprofpp*				        octave-3.2.3*
dt2dv*					octave-bug@
dumphint*				octave-bug-3.2.3*
dv2dt*					octave-config@
dvi2fax*				         octave-config-3.2.3*
