I am crossposting this to both bugs@ and ports@ so all who will join this
discussion keep this in mind if you'll reply.

No, it shouldn't. Sorry I didn't have enough time to investigate the 
problem further,
but it is a real pain for port distribution. IIRC the point I've reached 
all software works correctly. All files correct but port can't be build. The
reason that default behaviors are not the same on all levels and conversion
of new line from single char to double could occur. The solution is to
request text file as binary than all layers will bypass it without
modifications or to convert newline explicitly for all text files before
computation of checksum to the one default value (I guess to single-char

So the problem not in the port itself but in the set of conditions. And 
this bug report should be reopened with other description.
