There are two alternative methods for syncing over HTTP instead of using rsync:

Both are quite easy to set up, all you need to do is to change a single line in /opt/local/etc/macports/sources.conf.

As of version 1.8.0, MacPorts will automatically pick up HTTP and FTP proxy settings from Mac OS X network preferences. You don't need to do anything special anymore.

This may be outdated, but it appers using MacPorts over port 80 requires a fair amount of work. Basically, it amounts to setting port to use a svn server instead of rsync for the sync process.
