Please ignore last message...  `make test’ on vanilla macports/base do pass, evidently.  And after patching macports/macports-base#55, they appear to pass there as well - sorry.

An alternative approach might be to update global variables worksrcdir and worksrcpath, but without looking deeper, it’s not clear to me whether by the time extract is run, e.g., cmake’s configure command hasn't already been defined in terms of the previous value of worksrcpath.
