You should definitely only have one version installed, and it should be the latest. It is not normally possible to have the same port active twice. What is the output of the following?

port installed py27-scipy
port version

Why do you have 2 different gcc4x variants installed? You should really pick one, ideally gcc47, and consistently use that by adding it to your variants.conf file.
