If that's a common thing for ports that use the github portgroup, it 
should be fixed in the portgroup. That might be done by bringing back 
this code in some form: 

It may need some tweaking, for example the previously existing version 
of the code only ran if github.tarball_from was 'tarball', but I'm 
pretty sure I've seen hashes in the directory name for 'archive' as well 

If on the other hand this only affects a small number of ports, I think 
it's fine to let them keep handling this in their Portfiles, like any 
other uncommon requirement.
