Following the suggestion at [], I uninstalled Macfuse and sshfs. Then I installed Fuse4X (latest version) and sshfs again.

We don't support users installing software in /usr/local while using MacPorts; it can interfere with MacPorts software. Please remove or rename /usr/local, clean the affected ports, and try again.
