Installing port x11-toolkits/gtk20 fails mysteriously

I just updated my ports tree (portsnap fetch; portstap update) a few
hours ago, in order to update webkit. I'm using portmaster to do that.

One of the things it wants to update is gtk-2.20.1_2 to gtk-2.22.1_1.
It builds ok, but then when installing, it ends like this:

test -z "/usr/local/lib" || /usr/local/bin/gmkdir -p "/usr/local/lib"
 /bin/sh /usr/ports/x11-toolkits/gtk20/work/gnome-libtool   --mode=install /usr/
bin/install -c -o root -g wheel '/usr/local/lib'

===>>> A backup package for gtk-2.20.1_2 should
       be located in /usr/ports/packages/portmaster-backup

===>>> Installation of gtk-2.22.1_1 (x11-toolkits/gtk20) failed
===>>> Aborting update

Indeed, the file /usr/local/lib/ does not exist.

Any ideas?
