Fail port when using Local repository

Hey all,
I want to check if the local port works fine with the portfile I added locally. I follow the instruction in the documentation. I got this error:

Failed to parse file devel/civl/Portfile: invalid command name "(2)"

Total number of ports parsed:	1 
Ports successfully parsed:	0 
Ports failed:			1 
Up-to-date ports skipped:	0

Here is the portfile I want to check. <>

Please let me know what I should do to successfully parsing the port locally. Note that, I updated the sources.conf and I already added my local path before the original one. 


Note: It might appear my name as "Ziad Ali" instaed of "Abdulrahman Alshammari". 
This is an issue that I am trying to fix.
