[MacPorts] #44220: latexml fails in ACTIVATION step. "mktexlsr not found"

Curious; I was aiming for warnings, instead of errors.
Were you installing the +mactex variant?
sudo port install latexml +mactex
That's expected to give a warning about violating the macports
filesystem layout, *but* the 2nd message should have said that
it was installing style files in mactex's directory, and thus outside
macports --- I was hoping that message would be reassuring! :>

It seems to have printed the default 2nd message.  But looks
like it installed correctly.  If you run
   kpsewhich latexml.sty
it should show where it installed latexml.sty.  Should come
back with something in texmf/...../latexml.sty
If so, everything should be fine.

Thanks for the commit, folks!!

Comment (by damon.english@…):

 Ok.  Well it seems to install, with warnings.  Thanks to one and all.

 Warning: violation by /usr
 Warning: LaTeXML violates the layout of the ports-filesystems!
 Warning: Please fix or indicate this misbehavior (if it is intended), it
 will be an error in future releases!
 --->  Installing LaTeXML @0.8.0_0
 --->  Activating LaTeXML @0.8.0_0

 LaTeXML works best with some version of TeX installed.  Please consider
 +texlive variant, or PRE-install MacTeX and use +mactex variant.

 --->  Cleaning LaTeXML
 --->  Updating database of binaries
 --->  Scanning binaries for linking errors
 --->  No broken files found.
