Unrelated debug message, macports doesn't do much stuff actually running as
root but for auditing reasons logs all attempts to switch its uid in either
direction (and it didn't need to switch to the sandbox uid there because it
was already running with the sandbox uid).

The real problem

   1. :info:extract sh: /usr/bin/gnutar: No such file or directory

tells me that you have upgraded to Mavericks but you have not followed the
migration steps necessary after any OS upgrade (because Apple does not
check with third parties before changing or removing things).
