That's not preferred. Only use it for projects that *don't* provide
explicit distfiles.

Actually, installing in a home dir would kind of contradict the whole
purpose of a port/package.

I had a quick look upstream, the Makefile has an install target,
installing into the correct system-wide plugin dir and respecting
DESTDIR – there should really be no need for a do-install in the port.
