Everybody sometimes does something for the first time. And it's very
good you started doing your first port with reading of a documentation. :)

"filesystem was touched prior to 'make install' phase" means that your
port did something with filesystem (e.g. installed some files) during
build stage. Actually, port should not install files or perform any
actions modifying the filesystem during build stage. Files should be
installed only by 'make install'.

You could check this with a help of tinderbox (misc/tinderbox).
