Your TEXINPUTS works with teTeX 2.0, but it just happens to
work because /usr/local/share/texmf which is used by teTeX
is specified in the TEXINPUTS _manually_. This directory
is changed in teTeX 3.0. It is that simple.
This is one of the changes in teTeX 3.0, not a specific
change to the port. Using TEXINPUTS in this way (w/o a
trailing ":") is not recommended well before because with
hard-coded TEXINPUTS, change of the directory layout (using
non-default $PREFIX, for example) easily breaks teTeX.
