#58286: install of graphviz attempts to create directory /usr/lib/lua and fails
 Reporter:  TheLastLovemark  |      Owner:  (none)
     Type:  defect           |     Status:  new
 Priority:  Normal           |  Milestone:
Component:  ports            |    Version:  2.5.4
 Keywords:                   |       Port:  graphviz

 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 clean 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 https://trac.macports.org/ticket/52932 and

 I thought this might be a duplicate of
 https://trac.macports.org/ticket/55393, but is not. The circular depency
 problem was handled by the restore script before my manual attempt with
 the added variants.
