Well, if it works for you.  By default the port installs
config.inc.php owned by root:www mode 640, so if your webserver is
running (as it usually does) as www:www then it should be able to read
the file.  If you install WITH_SUPHP as the www user and the www

However, if you use a different UID/GID for your webserver, you can
override those settings by:

    # make install MYADMUSR=foo MYADMGRP=bar

Note that the config.inc.php file potentially contains database
passwords so you should be a bit careful about not letting the whole
world read it.
