Need help with a port

I'm the port maintainer for security/barnyard2.  I submitted a port 
upgrade a while ago, but the committer asked me to make a change before he 
would approve it.  I'm not sure what to do.

The source code, when it's extracted, sets the perms on install-sh to 
r--r--r.  This causes an error during the build.  The way I tried to 
resolve the issue was by adding this to the Makefile:

+        ${CHMOD} 744 ${WRKSRC}/install-sh

The committer said that was the wrong way to do it, that I should edit the 
configure file.  But the configure file doesn't do anything to the 
install-sh file at all.

Is there some other way to resolve this problem?  I'd like to get this 
update completed and approved.

This is the PR:
