You need to have the ports tree on the machine where you try it. Just
create a directory somewhere, copy the Makefile inside, and give it a
try (most easy as root, this way you don't have to override some
directory variables to get it working).

Before you try the redports suggestions: get it first working via a
simple "make" on a local system first. If you only use redports it
would slow you down until you get something working.
