Hmm, true. Would it help if I moved it to its own target and made that 
target conditional? (perhaps on a variable defined in /etc/make.conf)

Something like:

 	# Fail with message if var is mounted noexec,
 	# using something like my patch
 	# Skip the check

and make deinstall depend on that, or perhaps use it recursively.

That way, it wouldn't hurt people who don't need, want, or care for it. 
(It would still do nothing for your point 1, but I can't think of a way to 
make it shorter and still do what it's meant to.)
