MacPorts installs in /opt/local, not /usr/local.

The dot program should be in the directory /opt/local/bin, so that's probably the path you have to inform your GUI about.

If you also have a non-MacPorts version of Graphviz (or anything else, for that matter) installed in /usr/local, you should remove that because it could interfere with MacPorts.
