The log you attached was huge, and therefore your post was rejected from the mailing list. However, as one of the list administrators, I saw the log, and it contained:

:info:build grep: /opt/local/lib/ No such file or directory
:info:build /opt/local/bin/gsed: can't read /opt/local/lib/ No such file or directory
:info:build libtool: link: `/opt/local/lib/' is not a valid libtool archive

Nothing should be looking for .la files on Mavericks, because .la files get deleted by default in MacPorts on Mavericks and later. The error message suggests that you upgraded to Mavericks and did not reinstall all ports (which is required). See
