The committer committing the patch is responsible for testing the port for screw ups.

No port should install world-writable scripts or executables. This is a security issue. Again i ask you to fix the port or backout your commit.

In the old days, Kris processed the pointyhat logs for these issues[1]. Maybe someone with access to the pointyhat logs can do this again?

Also how about introducing a Makefile variable "WORLDWRITABLE_FILES" for the highscore files and aborting the install if a file is not mentioned in this variable.
