^^^ that doesn't do what you think it does

you probably want 'port installed'

... and you'll see that your 'duplicates' are likely just inactive ports (left over from upgrading, probably).

You can run 'sudo port uninstall inactive' to remove them if you don't want to keep them around.

You can use the -u flag with upgrade to have them automatically uninstalled when upgrading.
