WRKDIRPREFIX and make search

when I shared my ports tree using NFS among all my FreeBSD boxes (and   
thus set WRKDIRPREFIX in make.conf(5) to avoid conflicts while   
upgrading) I noticed that "make search" didn't work any longer (it
doesn't find anything).

I started to debug Mk/bsd.port.subdir.mk and I discovered that the
working directory seems to be $WRKDIRPREFIX/$PORTSDIR and thus
$here variable contains $WRKDIRPREFIX/$PORTSDIR ("/usr/obj/usr/ports" 
in my case).  Since it greps for this path in the INDEX file, nothing
is found.

Is it a bug or a feature ?  In the later case, what am I missing ?
