Why the '\' after post-extract: target? In port's Makefiles it is
not used. I did only quick check, not every Makefile :) but it may be
somehow the reason...

Another small thing to try is use ${.CURDIR}/files/
or ${FILESDIR}/ just in case your script file is not
properly found.

And you can verify ${SH} is properly set with some 'echo ${SH}' command

Those are three things coming into mind seeing your snippet, maybe it
helps, maybe not.
