The Lao hyphenation patterns have been removed and the file should not
be present, however it seems that your language.dat and/or
language.def still reference it. I have no idea how macports handle
language.dat/def files, but either you have your own copy somewhere or
the updated to 2012 is still missing some bits and pieces.

What does "kpsewhich language.dat" return you?

I checked texlive-lang-other and I don't see any reference to Lao, but
it might be hidden somewhere else.
