Comment (by ryandesign@…):

 There are several things I don't understand about this Portfile.

 * Why is libphutil a subport of arcanist? Why are these not separate
 ports? They don't appear to have much Portfile code in common.
 * Why is the php portgroup used? The portgroup is intended for ports of
 PHP modules. Are either of these ports PHP modules? Based on the
 descriptions, I'm assuming they aren't, and that you're merely trying to
 add a dependency on the latest version of PHP. If so, what you should do
 instead is to declare variants for each supported version of PHP.
 * In the destroot phase, you don't need to create the libexec directory;
 MacPorts does so for you. And you should not use `system` to call `cp
 -pR`; instead, use the `copy` procedure.
