I'm testing ports using a development ports tree under /freebsd/ports-dev
I'm setting PORTSDIR in /etc/make.conf accordingly.

When testing ports, make(1) does not complain about missing dependency ports, but portlint does. However all the error messages say that I'm missing a port directory in /usr/ports!

When looking at the sources, it's clear that portlint honors PORTSDIR if set in the environment, however it never reads /etc/make.conf
