I'm a bit confused with the meaning of PORTDOCS variable. It's
description state that it should not be used if NOPORTDOCS is
defined. But as far as I can judge from, PORTDOCS is not
ever accessed if NOPORTDOCS is defined. So should I check for NOPORTDOCS
when I define PORTDOCS?

I thing it would be better to change it's meaning to "list of
documentation files installed in unless NOPORTDOCS is defined", thus
getting rid of extra !defined(NOPORTDOCS) checks in Makefiles. I would
sumbit a PR for this right away, but there's which still
uses PORTDOCS without checkinf NOPORTDOCS, and I'm not sure how to
change it in correct way. Thus, cc maintainer.
