port selfupdate fails

before I start: yes, I have seen and read ticket #53414. I did not help:

I tried to to to selfupdate from 2.3.5 to 2.4.1 today (MacOS 10.11.6). it  
failed with

configure: === configuring in vendor/tcl/unix  
configure: error: no configure script found in vendor/tcl/unix
Command failed: CC=/usr/bin/cc OBJC=/usr/bin/cc ./configure  
--prefix='/opt/local' --with-install-user='root'  
--with-install-group='wheel' --with-directory-mode='0755'  
--enable-readline && make SELFUPDATING=1 && make install SELFUPDATING=1
Exit code: 1

I never touched macports.conf so it should be at its default settings (so  
rsync_dir is not set there ...). it looked like #53414 but as explained  
there seems nothing wrong with my (default) macports.conf.

I found another hint in the archive that using the pkg installer bypasses  
the problem. I found and used the one for 2.4.0 which indeed did do a  
(self?)update to 2.4.0. but even then, when issuing

port selfupdate to get fro 2.4.0 to 2.4.1 it fails the same way as  
described above.

what am I missing?
