Not exactly what I meant. What I meant is, does building from source create a binary package as an intermediate step, such that the actual install (and de/activation procedure) can be done regardless where the package came from?

I just loaded the libkgapi package from for which I filed
For example, it contains
-rw-r--r-- root/admin       40 2014-04-07 23:08 ./opt/local/include/libkgapi2/drive/User
-rw-r--r-- root/admin     2000 2014-04-07 23:08 ./opt/local/include/libkgapi2/drive/user.h

My own, self-built tarball in /opt/local/var/macports/software/libkgapi/libkgapi-2.1.1_0+docs.darwin_10.x86_64.tbz2 contains
-rw-r--r-- root/admin     2000 2014-04-07 23:08 ./opt/local/include/libkgapi2/drive/user.h
-rw-r--r-- root/admin       40 2014-04-07 23:08 ./opt/local/include/LibKGAPI2/Drive/User

My explanation for for what I think is responsible for the case folding that takes place here is in the trac ticket.
