Again I don't understand the question.

If you don't want the port to install anything, write the destroot phase to do that. Except that a port must install at least one file. But this doesn't sound like what you're asking.

Why will what the port installs inevitably be filled with expired certificates? What would be the cause of that happening?

If the port's contents should be changed (in the binaries produced by the buildbot and on user systems) then change the port to install the new contents and increase its revision.

Perhaps there is something unique about this software that I don't understand. (I have no idea what this software is.)
