It seems that variants in default_variants are not proliferated as
those specified in the command-line.
I have this problem with some ports that I maintain and
cause build failures with the buildbots.

I would be helpful if you help me fix this.



Assume port A depends on port B+a.

sudo port install A +a

will install B+a, but when a is in default_variants in A


default_variants +a

B is installed, not B+a.
