I strongly advise against making any changes to /opt/local manually.

In your case, check this list of TeX Live Packages available in MacPorts
and search for revtex:

So, revtex and revtex4 are actually available in TeX Live and are
provided by the port texlive-publishers. Just use the following command
to install the port and you should be done:

  sudo port install texlive-publishers

If you would need a TeX package that is not available in TeX Live or you
need a newer version than what is packaged in MacPorts, install it to
your home directory at ~/texmf (TEXMFHOME) instead.
