 There is a few flows in the port.
 1) Use MASTER_SITE_SUBDIR instead of addition you did in MASTER_SITES.
 2) You can ommit ${LOCALBASE}/bin in RUN_DEPENDS macro.
 3) Wrong logic with WITHOUT_X11 and WITH_MYSQL variables you use.
 The first: WITH_ and WITHOUT_ variables is for user options, you should 
 never set them in Makefile.
 Second: instead of
 you should use USE_MYSQL macro which do all magic.
 Anyway a construction like that is bad looking:
 WITHOUT_X11=	yes
 .if defined(WITHOUT_X11)
 4) Don't hard code PREFIX=/usr/local in pkg-install instead of change it 
   on PREFIX=%%PREFIX%%, move the file in files/pkg-install.in and add 
 next lines in Makefile:
 5) Don't use a random UID/GID. Select them from reserved numbers that 
 you can in The Porters Handbook and ask a committer (me?) to register 
 them there (you should give full lines like other in The Porters 
 Handbook). And create user and group with these UID/GID.
 6) Most bad thing. $Id$ tags should never been in patches. CVS will 
 change them after commit and patches will not be applied.
 BTW, tclX is broken and I can't check the port install.
