Well, first higher priority would be to fix existing bugs. It would be
very little
gain with user cache, because it is already too much IMHO slow and
adding user cache
will not make it faster, but that is not port problem.

It install files in this way:
test -z "/usr/local/share/doc/ext2fuse" || ./install-sh -c -d

make deinstall and pkg_delete doesnt not remove that files/dir,
