Comment (by reneeotten):

 hi Nicole,

 the instructions on that website must be years old since the variants
 you're trying to install (using the {{{+}}} after the port name) don't
 exist for as long as GitHub remembers ;) So you can just do {{{sudo port
 install py27-pymvpa}}} and leave all the other stuff out; even if you do
 use the command you showed it will ignore the non-existing variants

 Anyway, you're observation about installing {{{swig-python}}} makes sense
 - you likely need the Python bindings for {{{swig}}} as well.

 The command to specify which Python version to use when you type "python"
 is incorrect. You're selecting the Python version that comes with macOS (I
 think), or at least it's not the latest MacPorts version (which is Python
 2.7.16). So instead, please do:

 {{{sudo port select python python27}}}

 and then it should all work - at least it does for me.
