Issue with recent license infrastructure.

I noticed there is an issue with the license infrastructure recently
introduced in the ports tree. If the LICENSE_FILE (in port Makefile) points to
a file named LICENSE, then package generation fails, and also correct license
file fails to copy.

As a workaround, I've to copy LICENSE file to another name, say COPYING,
post-extraction, and mentioning COPYING as LICENSE_FILE (in port Makefile),
which then causes LICENSE file to be correctly generated and COPYING to be
correctly copied.
