has anyone else seen this install error?

This is something that someone has bound to have seen and
fixed already.  It seems to be a difference in installs
that happened around 5.2, that affects the way the symlink
to the shared object library is done.  (The port in this
example is devel/tcl-neo).

The port makefile and distfile are identical, but on
4.9 it succeeds with:

  ln -fs libneo82.so.1 /usr/local/lib/libneo82.so

and on 5.2 it fails with:

  ln -fs /usr/local/lib/libneo82.so.1 /usr/lib/libneo82.so

(Note "/usr/lib", not "/usr/local/lib".)

Any hints?
