Uhm... that's not a good idea, but should not be responsible for the  
problem you see.

Strange. I don't see anything here which is causing this. I can not  
reproduce it. How do you install the port?
   cd /usr/ports/graphics/linux-tiff
   make install
   make clean
is what I would expect.

In there's
@if [ -f ${PLIST} ]; then \
                 ${SED} ${PLIST_SUB:S/$/!g/:S/^/ -e s!%%/:S/=/%%!/}  
${PLIST} >> ${TMPPLIST}; \

Please add the following line between the @if and ${SED} line:
                 echo PLIST TEST ${.CURDIR}; pwd; \

Then reinstall a port which exhibits the behavior and search for the  
line with "PLIST TEST" (and the line which follows).
