Try running sudo port -d -y rev-upgrade.

Is this file missing? If yes, please re-activate the port that used to
provide this file. You might have to run deactivate followed by activate
to get the file back.

If the file isn't missing make sure you're running this with superuser

rev-upgrade will not scan stuff installed manually into the MacPorts
prefix unless it happens to have the name of a file previously installed
through macports and seen as active by MacPorts.

If a MacPorts-installed file links against one installed manually, it
will be checked though (but that doesn't seem to be the case here).
