My first attempt failed because for some reason Anaconda was making Macports look for a non-existant openssl.cfg file. I uninstalled that and things worked fine. You'll just want to ensure you do a reboot between uninstall and reinstall.
I made a bit of a mess to start, and had to end up going in this direction as well. I forgot (idiot that I am) to update to the appropriate developer tools (Xcode 7 GM). So, I'm in the process of rebuilding/reinstalling packages now. I have enough packages installed (due to dependencies) that the build is now on its 8th hour (atlas failed due to lack of fortran... I'll have to go back and look into it- I think I wasn't using the macports gcc in the past but certainly don't trust myself.).
I'll report any failures as I see them.

> If you recompile MacPorts, it will not affect your installed ports. But all ports will be marked as needing a rebuild, and some of those rebuilds may fail for El Capitan-specific reasons. If you encounter such a problem, please file a bug report so that we can fix it.
