Always, always, always do http://trac.macports.org/wiki/Migration after an
OS upgrade. Apple is prone to make major changes in new OS releases;
MacPorts (and Homebrew and Fink and any other package installer) *will*

One of the changes is that /usr/bin/gnutar is no longer a thing in 10.9, so
a MacPorts installed when it existed will still try to use it and fail. As
noted on the Migration page, you need to reinstall the MacPorts base so you
will get a version that doesn't rely on programs that Apple no longer
ships. As we do not yet have a handy installer, this currently means
installing from source. See
https://www.macports.org/guide/#installing.macports.source for details.
