Package and Ports using PKGDIR

I use a mix of ports and packages. I keep the downloaded packages 
stored at the machine.

PKGDIR is defined. So, I use

pkg_add -r --keep PackageName

to download and install the package.

When I then compile a port, I will not be able to install it as 
PKGDIR is defined and used as the directory of the current port.

Basically, I get then the error message that pkg-descr cannot be 

I have to undefined PKGDIR to run a successful make install.

Is this behaviour intenteded?
