MacPorts does not vary what it installs based on the language or region you set in system preferences.

But many ports installed by MacPorts do have localization files so that they can work in whatever locale (language) you want them to. This is influenced by the LANG and LC_* environment variables. The terminal sets these to reasonable values based on your language and region preferences but you can override them in your shell startup files if you want.
