I don't know what that Homebrew command does, but I assume no equivalent functionality exists in MacPorts.

root6 builds fine for me on El Capitan. Perhaps your ports tree is out of date? Try

sudo port clean root6
sudo port selfupdate
sudo port upgrade outdated
sudo port install root6

If it does not work, it is a bug; please file a bug report in the issue tracker.
