You probably don't have the file

Which version of boost do you have?
$ port installed boost

The mkvtoolnix port was built with latest boost (1.35.0_2) and maybe  
libboost_regex-mt is not provided by earlier versions. The solution  
would be to upgrade boost and try to install mkvtoolnix again. Your  
setup seems similar to mine (10.4.11/ppc).
