 This is an incompatibility with oniguruma 6.8.1 and later.

 To work around it, deactivate oniguruma6 first and (assuming you still
 want it for other reasons) reactivate it later:

 sudo port -f deactivate oniguruma6
 sudo port clean php70-mbstring
 sudo port install php70-mbstring
 sudo port activate oniguruma6

 (Trace mode (`sudo port -t install php70-mbstring`) would also work around
 the problem except that trace mode is currently broken on macOS Ventura
 and later; see #66358.)

 This is the upstream bug report:


 Here is FreeBSD's bug report about it:


 This is the fix which went into PHP 7.1 and later:


 php74-mbstring and later depend on and require MacPorts oniguruma6 to be
 installed. php73-mbstring and earlier have a bundled copy of oniguruma but
 php54-oniguruma and later will use the MacPorts oniguruma6 port if it is
 installed, which I didn't realize before.

 I need to either make php54-mbstring through php73-mbstring not use a
 MacPorts oniguruma if installed, or I need to backport that fix to php 7.0
 and earlier and add the oniguruma6 dependency to php54-mbstring through
