I think it *is* a bug. It was reported on this list by someone else yesterday as well:


You probably had the prior version of the port before reformatting, and when I updated the port recently, I had to do some fiddling with regard to the directory the compiled code ended up in. I appear to have fiddled incorrectly, but without debug output from someone for whom it fails, and more information about their system, I don't know how to solve it. Please *clean* the port, *then* try again with debug output:

sudo port clean lp_solve
sudo port -d install lp_solve 2>&1 | tee ~/Desktop/lp_solve.txt

Then attach lp_solve.txt from your desktop to the new ticket that you file in our issue tracker:


Please Cc me on the ticket so I will see it right away.
