I had the exact same problem this morning :-(

Nothing I did seemed to fix the problem:
1) reinstall XCode4 both on top of the existing install
   as well as re-installing from scratch
2) making _really_ sure that ${PATH} is correct
3) trying to set the full ${PATH} in
3) re-install of the port binary
   on top of my existing install of macports

I'm sure my problem was caused by re-installing Mac OS X 10.6.7 on top
of an existing 10.6.7 as I had gotten a corrupt install of Mac OS X by
doing an rsync between some directories between two computers

However, I finally resorted to re-installing everything from the ground
up !!! This had the advantage of me finding some bugs in some of my
customised Portfiles ;-)
