### Where has _circle_embedding gone?

After nearly killing myself (in frustration) installing Sage 8.4 from source on OSX 10.14.1 (Mojave), I discover that a graph plotting command that I frequently use has vanished, breaking a number of my own programs.

Previously (on SageMath up to 8.2) I would do

from sage.graphs.graph_plot import _circle_embedding


in order to access this.

Now I just get

ImportError: cannot import name _circle_embedding


I can relatively easily replace this particular function myself, but if it were something more complicated, I would be at a loss to know how to track down the cause for its disappearance and figure out how to get it back.

So I guess the questions are: has it only vanished for me due to a botched or incomplete installation, or has it somehow been removed from Sage? In either case, how can I recover it?
