ports without pkg-descr

I'm having trouble understanding a few ports and I'm hoping you can
help. The ports in question are:
The issue: pkg-descr, or more precisely, the output of make -V DESCR.
[dan at polo:/usr/home/dan/ports/devel/glibmm-reference] $ make -V DESCR
Is that expected? A pkg-descr in the working directory?
If so, that file is created during the build process. Within the
current FreshPorts framework, this is an anomoly and there is no way
for the system to go through the steps necessary to create that file.
I have attempted to make both devel/glibmm-reference and and still
not find a pkg-descr file. Is this expected behaviour?
Is is really necessary to have a pkg-desc that is constructed
automatically? I ask in case there's a way around this without
special casing it for FreshPorts.
