CACKey_0.7.8_Slandup.pkg installation fails

  I am installing "CACKey_0.7.8_Slandup.pkg" CACKey package. It failed 
with the following information:

"The installation failed. The installer encountered an error that caused 
the installation to fail.

Contact the software manufacturer for assistance."

I just checked two directories in my Mac (OS 10.14.6) "/usr/local/lib" 
and "/Library",

There are two folders "pkcs11" and "CACKey" that are created today 
(7/21). I can not access these two folders because

the owner is macports.

  I am wondering whether the above issues cause the failure of 
installation of "CACKey_0.7.8_Slandup.pkg"?

May I remove those two folders "pkcs11" and "CACKey"? How can I remove 
them or How can I change the owner?
