I stepped a little bit further. Seems that the port (?) does not
respect UNAME_r at 5.x (I have only 5.4-STABLE to test at):
# echo $UNAME_r
UNAME_r: Undefined variable.
# uname -srm

# pwd
# make UNAME_r=9.0-FUTURE | grep freebsd

Other FreeBSD versions (didn't check 6.x but assume the same):

UNAME_r: Undefined variable.

The same results are for adding "MAKE_ENV+= UNAME_r=9.0-FUTURE" to
the port's Makefile.
