MacPorts 1.8.0 and up require Tiger and later. You cannot install them version on OS X 10.3.9.

What we were trying to help you get was a set of portfiles compatible with the last version of MacPorts compatible with 10.3.9. The archive of ports created on the day 1.8.0 was released should still be compatible with MacPorts 1.7.1. That's what's in the dports directory of the above archive. You would put that directory somewhere on your hard drive, and refer your existing MacPorts 1.7.1 installation to it by editing your sources.conf file.
