"Installing older port" installs to "./", not to "/"

	I just copied the Portfile for an older version of a port to a local directory, and did "port install" as root, only to find that the port was installed with a value of "destroot=." rather than "destroot=/".  It put it in a tree starting at the directory with the portfile in it.  Am I going to have to put the Portfile into "/" to get it to install in the right place?  What's going on here?
