Just looking at the portfile, it's looking pretty out of date.  I suspect
it's not being actively maintained (and don't see offhand why anyone would
use it anyway; it's not like you can usefully install any RPM packages —
even noarch packages would probably require a metapackage representing OS
X-provided files  as dependencies.

Beyond that , this is apparently something going wrong with fixing up
Python paths.  More detail should be available via "port log rpm"; can you
pastebin or attach the output from that?
