#58286 assigned defect

install of graphviz attempts to create directory /usr/lib/lua and fails

Description (last modified by mf2k (Frank Schima))


I just upgraded from Sierra to High Sierra a few days ago and am in the process of reinstalling ports. The restore script was able to install a bunch of stuff, but without many of the variants I previously had.

When attempting to install graphviz via port -vd install graphviz +gdk_pixbuf +glitz +guile +java +lua +ming +ocaml +pangocairo +perl +poppler +python27 +r +rsvg +ruby +smyrna +tcl +x11, the build fails. I noticed the line Error: Failed to activate graphviz: can't create directory "/usr/lib/lua": not owner. I know it's not recommended, but I did this as the SU

This reminded me of #52932 and #44109

I thought this might be a duplicate of #55393, but is not. The circular depency problem was handled by the restore script before my manual attempt with the added variants.
