Comment(by Kona8lend@…):

 Here's the state as near as I can figure it:

  1. mkvtoolnix bundles drake which in turn has a build-time dependency on
 a ruby of version approximately 1.8.x .
  2. build-time dependency is for executable ''''ruby'''' to be found in
 the path.
  3. MacOSX bundles '''/usr/bin/ruby''' thus mkvtoolnix builds without
 '''port:ruby''' and without '''port:ruby19'''
  4. drake does not reference or try to use ''''ruby1.9'''' from the path

 ruby is bundled on both pertinent versions of MacOSX (10.7 and 10.6) thus
 build-time dependency for '''port:ruby''' or '''port:ruby19 +nosuffix'''
 is not required.

 I recommend at this time to remove the build-time dependency for
 '''port:ruby'''. This solves (presumably) the ticket issue of not
 installing port:ruby unnecessarily.
