That still seems to return no error code.

I'm no perl programmer, but I tried adding this to
bsd.port.mk just below check-conflicts:

.if !target(check-broken)
.if defined(BROKEN)
        ${ECHO_MSG}; \
        ${ECHO_MSG} "====> ${PKGNAME} marked broken"; \
        exit 1

It works for my purposes, but I've never tried submitting anything on the 
ports infrastructure, do you think this would fly?  It sure would make my 
life easier, because all I would have to do is test "make check-broken"
