The command you say you issued looks mostly correct, except that I would point out that according to "port variants vim" the "ruby" variant is obsolete; you should instead specify the variant corresponding to the version of ruby you want. Also, according to "port variants vim", no variant "python" exists; use the variant corresponding to the version of python you want.
