Sorry, wrong output... On the server considered, the file is missing in 
the list.

I finally almost found where something is wrong!

We are using a homemade script for some helping ports install.

Basically, our script do this:

make clean all
make generate-plist
make check-already-installed
[and more...]

The problem is on "generate-plist". This step was required when we made 
the script in order to be able to do check-already-installed.
Now, it looks like this is not necessary anymore (the plist is already 
built by "all" target).

BUT, if you try this :

$ make clean all
$ cp /usr/obj/usr/ports/security/openssh-portable/work/.PLIST.mktmp 
$ make generate-plist

$ diff -u

And I think it's a bug, for 2 reasons: first, if the PLIST is already 
here, I don't see any reason to "rebuilt" it, and second, if it does, it 
should be the same :)

I made a PR for this:
