from sysutils/fusefs-kmod:

.include <bsd.port.pre.mk>

.if !exists(${SRC_BASE}/sys/Makefile)
IGNORE=         requires the Kernel source to be installed. Set SRC_BASE if it is not in /usr/src
.if !exists(${SRC_BASE}/sbin/mount)
IGNORE=         requires the userland sources to be installed. Set SRC_BASE if it is not in /usr/src

Me, I would not test for the Makefile, but one of the actually required headers.
