Unexpected results from "make index" on a ports tree in a non-standard location,

To test mkreadmes handling of ports trees in non-standard locations, I
just did the following:

#cd /usr
#mv ports /usr/local
#cd /usr/local/ports
#export PORTSDIR=/usr/local/ports
#make index

All seemed to proceed normally during the index build, but when I
checked the resulting INDEX-10 file, all of the ports' paths were still
using /usr/ports, not /usr/local/ports.

Did I overlook something, or is there a defect in "make index"?
