The makefile clearly subverts the order by predefining USE_X_PREFIX as
"no". It solves the problem but I'd prefer a general solution, perhaps
removing the definitions of BUILD_DEPENDS and RUN_DEPENDS, in lines
2037 and 2038 of bsd.port.mk. I'm afraid, however, that this would
break packages that don't list their run-time dependencies via

cd /usr/ports/sysutils/life
make clean
