By typing just "port", you've entered the MacPorts shell mode. In this mode, you can type MacPorts commands without needing to type "port" in front of each command. I seldom use this mode and would guess most people don't use it much either.

"sudo" isn't a MacPorts shell command. It's a regular shell command.

To exit MacPorts shell mode, type "quit".
