Metadata on files from buildbot?

We're getting activations errors when metadata is being attached to
read-only files on the buildbots. This causes errors on activation (with
MP's libarchive and HFS compression) due to is likely bug in libarchive
wrt. chmod() and setting metadata order-of-operations.

That said, do we know why this metadata is being created on some subset of
files in some subset of ports? Like some (?!) of the gzipped manpages?

Please take a look and chime in / add yourself to the cc: here if you can
