ports system and umask

I had my umask set to 007 and installed some ports, and it broke a
lot of things. Some ports seem to install files with correct permissions,
while others install files with the default umask. Worse, one port
even changed the perms on /usr/local/lib to 770, which made my system
unusable until I booted into single and fixed it.
Should the ports system check for this and correct the umask before
installing files with bad permissions?
