A bit more information:

/opt/local/usr/share/vim was also missing. Here's where it gets stranger.

% sudo port uninstall vim % sudo port install vim +aqua

Now, /opt/local/usr/share/vim is installed, but and the gvim shell scripts are not. If I repeat, the opposite is true again back to the original reported state.

I don't have the resources to be more helpful. Running vim independently of macports in the meantime since the current state is unusable.

sorry, I meant /opt/local/share/vim, not /opt/local/usr/share/vim

It probably has to do with the fact that the vim port installs incredibly messily: it puts a in /opt/local with no good reason and worst installs things in the destroot directory (which is erased after install by the clean instruction).

For me, vim @7.0.178_0+aqua+huge+ncurses+perl+python has installed a and Vim/ in /Applications/Darwinports/ and /opt/local/bin/gvim and everything is good.

I'm having a similar issue; vim +aqua isn't installing anything into /opt/local/ What's odd is that 'port contents vim' shows the following:

... /opt/local/var/db/dports/build/_opt_local_var_db_dports_sources_rsync.rsync.darwinports.org_dpupdate_dports_editors_vim/work/destroot/opt/local/ ...

It does however install stuff to /Applications/DarwinPorts/Vim/, and if I symlink that to /opt/local/, everything works fine.
