If mkdir fails, the install of the files will fail, leading to an
obvious error (even if the cause of the error might take a little
detective work). If the mkdir succeeds, then installing the files will
succeed, making the output of the mkdir command irrelevant.
As for policies, PREFIX-cleanliness already IS a policy, it's just not
given as much attention as we'd like due to limited resources. If
you're interested in making a contribution to ports spend some time in
the trenches WORKING on that problem rather than worrying about what
other problems we can make (effectively useless) policies about.
