It does say in their instructions, before those commands, "run (as root):"

You will need to be root to selfupdate and install ports, but usually you should do that by putting "sudo" in front of those commands.

It's unfortunate they're suggesting you should install an obsolete port like gcc44. The last version of gcc44 was released 6 years ago and we don't support it on High Sierra and later. The current stable version of gcc is gcc7.
