Here is an archived copy of the instructions from 18 months ago:
I rewrote many parts of the instructions a week or two ago, but unfortunately these have not been archived at archive.org yet.

Yes. In place of using the web-based repository browser that is part of our Trac installation, you can use the command-line svn client.
For example, if you were trying to downgrade to boost 1.58.0 now that we've updated boost in MacPorts to 1.59.0, you could run
svn log https://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/trunk/dports/devel/boost/ --limit 5
to see the last 5 log entries for boost. If you didn't find what you were looking for in the 5 most recent revisions, you could increase that number.
The Subversion URL will always begin with https://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/trunk/dports/ and then continue with the category name and main port name; you can find these in the third column of the output you see when running "port list boost":
port list boost
boost @1.59.0 devel/boost
