I also have MacPorts first in my path 
(/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:...) and it doesn't cause any problems. 
If it does for you, it's because an /opt/local/bin/python symlink 
pointing to the MacPorts version of Python was created at some point 
(this is not the default, AFAIK). If you remove that symlink and restore 
your previous path, the problem should go away. Prefixing one of Apple's 
crazy directories to your path isn't an elegant solution.

Once you fix your path, you may want to recompile, just to be safe.
