Yeah I tried that the other day with no luck. Then I figured it out. It seems as though the fact that it was retaining my previous install information when I originally installed darwinports was what was causing the issue. After installing the new version of macports and doing a selfupdate left me with the same problem. It was late at night by the time I did that so I just wiped my macports install and all its references and did a fresh install and then just ran a quick shell script to install everything I wanted over night. The next day when I checked everything I created the startup items for the services I wanted and rebooted and I have a fully functional macports install again. Still a little weird why the uninstall never worked but it is working now so that is all that matters.
