Is there any particular reason why you are trying to build the web

More importantly, why do you have to build the web site as root?

The files are installed in ${DESTDIR}, which defaults to the
${HOME}/public_html/ directory of the user running the build.

% orion:/d/www/share/mk$ grep DESTDIR *
%   ${HOME}/public_html
% NOTE: webcheck's output always stored to ${DESTDIR}/webcheck directory.
% orion:/d/www/share/mk$ 

This is not a CVS problem ;-)
