Not sure the following diagnoses will help, but you may try (in  
Terminal):

which kpsewhich
which latex
kpsewhich fmtcount.sty
kpsewhich texmf.cnf
kpsewhich --all texmf.cnf

The first will tell where kpsewhich is found, which is then used by  
TeX and friends to find all things TeX-related. The second tells which  
latex is used, the third where fmtcount.sty is found.

The fourth and fifth tell which configuration files texmf.cnf are used  
(the effect of these files is cumulative). These are the configuration  
files which define the locations of the various texmf trees, in which  
order they are searched and for which type of TeX component.

Here with MacTeX 2008 and no MacPorts I'm getting:

$ which kpsewhich
/usr/texbin/kpsewhich
$ which latex
/usr/texbin/latex
$ kpsewhich fmtcount.sty
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf-dist/tex/latex/fmtcount/fmtcount.sty
$ kpsewhich texmf.cnf
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf.cnf
$ kpsewhich --all texmf.cnf
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf.cnf
/usr/local/texlive/2008/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf
