So the port providing /opt/local/bin/expect should be revbumped after
the recent upgrade to Tcl 8.6. You should file a bug for this.

So far that's expected to happen; however, it should just have rebuilt
expect and all the other broken libraries. There should not have been a
need to rebuild vim, unless the rebuild of a dependency of vim failed
and it wasn't re-installed again.
