Don't know, but:
i) you can always compile from sources without using the
FreeBSD ports system. Perhaps this kind of users don't see
ii) Not all users carry the exact same FreeBSD ports tree.
Differences in the main bsd.*.mk files could have been
introduced after updating the postgresql7 port to 723. But
this is just a wild guess.
The problem I reported has been experienced by others.
See the following thread:
Based on this problem reports (PRs):
