whatever that may be lives in the path but it doesn't say what the exact thing is I should
uninstall. There is nothing by that name anywhere directly or somewhere down that path.

The message you received is printed if the file /usr/local/include/db.h exists on your system.
This file, and anything else you have installed in /usr/local, should be removed before attempting
to use MacPorts. For an explanation, see:

care for or wanted.

MacPorts installs the dependencies required to install the software you requested.

If you have further questions about MacPorts, please join the macports-users mailing list:

and read the MacPorts guide:
