	When overriding the destination of the www/gallery port with the
GALLERYDIR make variable, the port assumes the given path to be relative to
/usr/local (or whatever the local directory is set to), even if the value
of the variable begins with a slash.
cd /usr/ports/www/gallery ; make GALLERYDIR=/usr/phpapps/gallery install clean
(the port will be installed to /usr/local/usr/phpapps/gallery)

Either change the Makefile to allow for fully qualified pathnames, or document the
fact that the variable is relative to ${LOCAL}.
