I still think the suggestion I made in is worth a try. If you can't put a clone of the macports-ports git repo in /opt/anything, you can pick another short path that you can write to. For example, /var/tmp should be writable, and the OS doesn't clear it out automatically (unlike /tmp); you could put your ports in /var/tmp/p. That would shorten the paths a lot, but I'm not sure if it'll shorten them enough to fit into the 256K arg length limit.
