That would work if the OP had /opt/local/bin early in his searcht path.
However, the OP has installed Python27 from, and that has
prepended /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin to
his PATH, overriding anything he does with "port select".

He could, of course, change his PATH and move /opt/local/bin to the
front and then use "port select".
