Some ports uses git while make configure to load deps

I see this many times with different ports, for example: graphics/evince.
Probably this is new meson behaviour.

Run-time dependency libhandy-1 found: YES 1.6.2
Library m found: YES
Found CMake: /usr/local/bin/cmake (3.24.3)
Run-time dependency gi-docgen found: NO (tried pkgconfig and cmake)
Looking for a fallback subproject for the dependency gi-docgen

Does it violates some ports requirements to not load anything that not covered by "make makesum"?
