updating a port, Argument list too long?

I'm updating the bioperl port, and have hit a snag.

It installs scads of man3 pages, and I have them listed in a MAN3
section of the Makefile.

install says "===>  Compressing manual pages for p5-bioperl-..." and
then says:
/bin/sh:Argument list too long
*** Error code 1

and it dies.

Is there a ports-approved mechanism for handling this?
