This indicates that ircii was already successfully installed before you even ran the "sudo port install ircii" command.

After every install or upgrade, MacPorts scans all installed ports for errors.

17 ports with errors were found during the scan. MacPorts will now try to rebuild them.

These 3 ports that you have installed were not found in the ports collection. In fact they were deleted from the collection some time ago. I don't remember what happened to eggdbus. The gstreamer and gst-plugins ports were split into ports for version 0.10.x and 1.x. You can uninstall these ports.

These 2 installed ports seem to be broken.

The configure phase failed. The log file might tell us why.
