Try this:
sudo port -n upgrade --enforce-variants shogun +python26
sudo port clean py26-pymvpa
sudo port install py26-pymvpa

Do you have as space between the hyphen and shogun?
With space does not work:
port info py26-pymvpa - shogun

Without space works:
port info py26-pymvpa -shogun

The py26-pymvpa ports shogun variant seems oddly implemented.
$ port variants py26-pymvpa
py26-pymvpa has the variants:
[+]shogun: Do not build shogun

I would expect +shogun TO BUILD  shogun.
