I assumed he had it installed already, since he was trying to upgrade outdated ports.

Hm. When running "upgrade installed", I've definitely seen MacPorts rebuild ports that were not listed as outdated. (That is, "upgrade outdated" did nothing, but "upgrade installed" did something. I saw this recently with cloog and isl.) Of course, it's possible that I misattributed the reason for this.
