Sure there is.  That's why we have ports committers.  They are supposed
to audit the changes to the port to make sure that the changes are safe.
In particular, I expect that they check that the changes are not so
extensive that they indicate the distributing system has been hacked.

There's no such check as the above possible with checkouts from a source
control system.  You get whatever is on that box at time T.
