If you've installed MacTeX-2009 you should either remove the call to the file that is setting these environment variables (in your .profile or .bash_profile) or, if you have other items from MacPorts, putting /ust/texbin at the front of your PATH variable:

export PATH=/usr/texbin:$PATH

so that MacTeX(TeX Live)-2009 is found before the MacPorts version. You will then be able to switch between the TeX Live 2009 and MacPorts distribution using the TeX Distribution System Preference Pane.

Good Luck,
