I assume you are talking about starting up with the 32-bit kernel instead of the 64-bit kernel? MacPorts shouldn't care what kernel you're running.

You either didn't install Xcode, or told it to omit (or didn't tell it to include) the command-line tools / UNIX development tools. See item 3 here:

> 7. tried to upgrade MacPorts but was informed that I hadn't upgraded Dev Tools. (My Developer Profile still shows 10.4.0 Mac OS SDK) But the Xcode page in the Mac Store shows Xcode 4.2.1 already installed

The Xcode page in the Mac App Store shows that you have the Install Xcode program installed. Run that program to actually install Xcode.

Note that after upgrading to a new major release of OS X you will probably need to reinstall MacPorts and all ports. Read:
