macports thinks xcode is not installed...?

I recently upgraded my harddrive to a hybrid SSD and had to reinstall OS X
Yosemite then restore everything from Time Machine backup.

I then re installed XCode albeit a newer version, this time I went with the
XCode 7 beta 4 release. It seems to automatically install the xcode command
line tools without me needing to do xcode-select --install.

Anyway, I recently did an upgrade of all my outdated ports and got this
warning message:

Warning: Xcode does not appear to be installed; most ports will likely fail
to build.

Meanwhile it is downloading, compiling, installing, activating and cleaning
everything just fine. It seems macports thinks xcode is not there while it
is using its compilers to do its work...

What is going on and is this going to lead to problems down the road?

Is there anything I need to do to fix this?
