You mean step 2 of bootstrapping 2? Which says to run:

sudo port -v -s install libcxx

You normally should not use "-f" to force an installation. And single-letter flags (like "-v" and "-s") must go immediately after the word "port", and before the next word, for them to have any effect.

Please confirm that at this point, you have not done any of the steps from bootstrapping 3, such as editing macports.conf...
