I ran into this not long ago as well.  I believe it to be related to the
name change, particularly the OSVERSION checks.  I don't have a DragonFly
test box set up at the moment, but if I can get one running later tonight,
I'll take a look at that.  (No guarantees, I'm a relative newcomer to ports
internals ;))

The OSVERSION checks have the potential to cause a lot of problems when
using freebsd ports.  A quick grep shows over 800 such test in the ports
