Installs the ports's bits into [most likely] /usr/local, cause an error
while trying to build the package, and create a situation where
`pkg_delete' could not be used to delete the installed bits.

Just a different flavor of catching the errors.  "make PREFIX=/tmp/foo
package" will also complain if it cannot find the binaries to tar up in
