Just to make clean: what I am proposing is the following course of 
actions when DESTDIR is defined:

1. Build port as usually. Install it as usually.

2. After usual installation is complete build temporary binary package 
out of it and install it into DESTDIR environment.

Automating it would require some amount of work, granted, but it would 
be one time task, not constant burden on port maintainers.
