Ah. Indeed it does say that. First time I've seen that manpage. :-)

I don't know if any portfile actually installs anything in /opt/local/ 
games. Seems to be like it would be a bad idea, since in order to use  
those items effectively, you'd have to add /opt/local/games to your  
PATH as well, and I've never seen that recommendation in any  
installation doc. Why make people add two paths to their PATH when  
adding just the one would be just fine if everything got installed in  
that one path?
