I've been running MacTeX in parallel to MacPorts for years without any
issues, just making sure that MacTeX's path came in front of MacPorts.
What probably broke it for you is that you must have selected TeX from
MacPorts to be your main distribution (probably in TLU as the old
preference pane is probably dead by now?) and then tried to update it
(TeX provided by MacPorts) via TLU. This has no chance to work. (This
can be seen from the fact that /Library/TeX/texbin pointed to
MacPorts.) You also have /opt/local/bin in front of the bin folder for
MacTeX. Putting MacTeX's path in front would certainly help.
