There is a ticket about this <https://trac.macports.org/ticket/55039>
If you install MacPorts with certain build options, eg a non-standard curlprefix, for example
make && sudo make install
and then later selfupdate, and a new MacPorts is noted and installed:
sudo port -v selfupdate
it will install the new copy of MacPorts ignoring the previous curlprefix (and some other build options are ignored as well).
So -- "sudo port -v selfupdate" appears to only really work with all standard installation options.
