Thanks. I have rerun the installer and run upgrade outdated and it is not complaining about the user. So, perhaps  the installation is sane now.

Actually, I would still like to know what information is needed to create the macports user since I have to wait until an appropriate time to go through the migration steps.

Just installing macports via the installer dmg will do it, without disrupting installed ports (but again, you will have disrupted some of those anyway through missing their startupitems etc.).
