pdflatex (provided by the texlive-latex port) links with libpoppler.dylib (provided by the poppler port). When poppler was updated to version 0.14.x the version of the poppler library increased from 6 to 7 and every port linking with poppler needed to receive a revision increase in order to rebuild against that new version of libpoppler.dylib. It looks like this was overlooked for texlive-latex, presumably because it does not declare a direct dependency on poppler. (Instead, its dependency texlive-bin does.)

To work around this problem for now, you can force texlive-latex to rebuild, like this:

sudo port -n upgrade --force texlive-latex
