stagedir vs. jail

I resently have some problems installing/updating ports. The main problem is that the stagedir path is somehow messed up.

The system is running FreeBSD 9.1-RELEASE-p6 and I'm working in a jail. While building it creates the stagedir in /s/portbuild/usr/ports/...../usr/local/
BUT: When it comes to the pkg building it suddently is looking in .../usr-local/.. witch acctualy is a part of the symlink. (In the jail /usr/local is a symlink to /s/usr-local). Resulting in an failure. 

The only workiaround  is disabling stage completly thru make.conf...
As this is very quick'n'dirty I wonder if there is any other solution!

Linux:          "Where do you want to go tomorrow?"
FreeBSD:        "Are you guys coming or what?"
