The port creates during the build process directorys outside
WRKSRC, the port was BROKEN by this back in 1999 (Revision 1.13).
I have no idea how to change this, at the moment. Will the port
become again BROKEN after I solved the pkg-plist? I hope not.

The pkg-plist itself is now working and I can compile example
programs from the Palm SDK :-)

Also the PREFIX is set to /usr/local/pilot, so that 'make
deinstall' or pkg_delete does not remove the directory completly
(but without warnings ;). The port use its own PREFIX since the
earlys revisions. I think it is because prc-tools must install
some gcc stuff before prc-tools can compile successful. Can I
leave this problem for someone else or is it sufficient to remove
/usr/local/pilot completly during deinstallation? I have not
found another port which use this prefix.
