This is totally an upstream issue with MacVim, and it has nothing to do with MacPorts. See 57170 and feel free to leave your comments here: <https://github.com/macvim-dev/macvim/issues/751>.

There is a workaround in that PR that you can use temporarily.

I'll leave this ticket open for the inevitable next group of people who find this same flickering, until upstream resolves it.

Thanks, so there's a record here the workaround is to disable the Core-Text renderer in the MacVim advanced settings.
