I use apple's ruby, but have postgres, perl and a lot of other
packages/libraries installed from macports, and am quite happy with
I had the same multiple-version-issues I think you're experiencing at
first, believing that all deactivated ports were still required as
dependencies, but eventually got tired of the mess and did a forced
uninstall of anything inactive. My apps still worked.

Installing a single app from source isn't that much of an issue, but I
have 100+ different ports installed on my dev box. Four(*) commands in
a terminal window keeps them all current.


sudo port sync                # update package info
sudo port selfupdate       # update macports
sudo port upgrade installed    # upgrade installed ports
sudo port uninstall -f inactive  # clean up after upgrade
