MacPorts does not vary what it installs based on the language or region you set in system preferences.
But many ports installed by MacPorts do have localization files so that they can work in whatever locale (language) you want them to. This is influenced by the LANG and LC_* environment variables. The terminal sets these to reasonable values based on your language and region preferences but you can override them in your shell startup files if you want.
Until then, the only workaround is to explicitly select the language by
exporting the locale variables LANG and LC_ALL in the environment, which should
override the language preferences set in the macOS settings.

I believe the GNU folks are slowly moving to CI to help catch errors
on OS X and FreeBSD. Recently I saw some chatter about a check-in
based on a CI failure. That's a big step forward for them.
