Make sure that the user "macports" can get to that directory. This usually
means "chmod o+x ~" to grant search (only) privilege so that it can
traverse ~ to get to the swig subdirectory. (If you are feeling paranoid,
you can use "chmod -e" to limit that access to the "macports" user instead
of all users; see `man 1 chmod` for how OS X ACLs work.) Likewise ensure
that the swig directory grants access to the "macports" user and that that
user can read the Portfile and patch.
MacPorts does not perform all operations as root, but drops to the
unprivileged "macports" user for most things.
