You probably have to escape the asterisk, or your shell will use it to perform filename generation.
% port list py\*
% port list "py*"
% port list 'py*'
Tangentially, you may really want "port echo" instead of "port list", as "port echo" is much faster. See the port(1) man page.
Good point! Thanks.
