I don't think I've ever heard of corruption like that happening before. I'm not sure that's possible. I would not jump to recommending uninstalling or reinstalling anything at this point.

Perhaps you're getting confused by the fact that the main.log file that's been attached in this thread contains several attempts. It might be helpful to look just at the last attempt. You can find each attempt by searching through the logfile for "version:1". It might also be useful for the user to "sudo port clean" the affected port before trying again, to ensure that the prior incomplete attempts are not interfering.
