This problem is basically because your port doesn't conform to
hier(7).  As you can see from add-plist-post, we have support for
ports that violate hier(7) by installing into an entirely different
PREFIX, but not for ports that do what yours does.

The best thing you can do is to make the port hier(7)-compliant,
otherwise overriding add-plist-post is about all you can do.
