Good to know that you could find a way to solve your issue. 

Then, concerning your issue about classicthesis, I don't think it is anymore related to Macports, as you now use the TeXLive distribution. 

The present version of the package classicthesis (see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/classicthesis/) does not contain any file "classic-preamble.sty", which has been suppressed in recent versions of the package (see http://www.tex.ac.uk/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/classicthesis/CHANGES) with classicthesis-config.tex. You thus need to download an older version of the package or adapt your use to the new one. However, as already said, this not anymore related to any Macports' port.

>> From the start, kile installed with Macports is not supposed to use an external tex installation in /usr/local, and would use the one installed from Macports. In the case kile points to this external installation (which can be checked in the menu Settings->System Check... ), it would mean that it is not a standard installation. 
>> This said, the main paths for kile are set in a file called kilestdtools.rc, which should be located in /opt/local/share/apps/kile/kilestdtools.rc for a standard prefix. The path to the tex install could be changed in there. However, a manual change in this file may be overwritten by an upgrade of the port when it occurs.

>>> I recently installed TexLive2011. I then installed the kile editor compiling it by source and everything went fine. Despite this some days ago I run into issues with kile. It wasn't able to find any of the koma-script files. But those files were present as I see them in /usr/local/texlive/2012/texmf-dist/tex/latex/koma-script/ . Since I couldn't find any solution I decided to update from TexLive2011 to TexLive2012. I followed the simple instruction indicated here:  http://tug.org/mactex/ . Installation successful but the .profile file was not updated, it still pointed to the old version of TexLive2011. The same for all the binaries in /opt/local/bin/ . I also removed the 2011 version but still they use the old version.
