Just a quick update on this:

I still have not resolved the issue or found any leading cause after 
scrubbing my ports tree completely and grabbing a new copy. Also scrubbed 
my src.conf make.conf and make.conf.local and ran with and without a jail 
and can still get those files.

Seeing that this is i386 and it is compiling gcj by default I could set
WITHOUT_JAVA to clear it up.

Not that I really need to have gcj  and there are probably other better 
compilers for this I like to have it around for a Just-In-Case since I am 
already installing the port.

As this seems to be a problem local to only the java portion of gcc44 the 
files mentioned in a previous message to the list will not be seen on 
anything other than FreeBSD/i386 ~ >= 7.0

So in a final word.  If anyone has any pointers as to what might be 
causing this or other information that I could share it would be greatly 
appreciated if it leads to getting closer to tracking this down,

For further unrelated to this port information:
I also have files installed by libxul and diablo-jdk1.6.0 that also have 
the ($) in the file name.
