This is

I guess you had not updated your ports in awhile, and just now updated from icu 58 to 65. 

Below we see that rev-upgrade has correctly detected the problem and would rebuild the affected port, were it not for the problem rebuilding gtk-doc that interrupted it.

You should not be attempting to force things unnecessarily. And I don't believe you're successfully forcing anything, since single-dash flags like -f and -R must be placed between the word "port" and the command verb that follows it in order to have any effect.

The log says the problem is:

:info:build /opt/local/bin/ranlib: object: .libs/libtester.a(tester.o) malformed object (unknown load command 1)

But I don't know why. Maybe you need a newer cctools and/or ld64, possibly using the xcode/ld64_xcode variant. Or maybe those ports just need to be upgraded first; I think they were just updated to new versions a few days ago.
