Problems with update to print/tex-luatex

When I tried updating print/tex-luatex today, the install phase failed with
a number of missing files. The log showed that the port uses luatex in the
install phase but fails due to a missing .so, This has been
superseded by, but the install was defaulting to the
previously built binary, not the newly built one.

I was able to get the port installed by deleting the existing port (pkg
delete tex-luatex) and
deleting work/.stage_done.luatex._usr_local and re-running stage and

I think a note to that effect should be in UPDATING. Obviously this does
impact new installs or poudriere build and probably not package installs,
but it does hit upgrades.
