Some months already, IIRC.  These checks are to ensure that the PLIST
is consistent with what is really installed by the package.  I'm not
sure if this only happens when PKG_DEVELOPER is enabled, though.

print-PLIST might not generate a complete PLIST because it uses
timestamps to determine what is new in the installation directory.  If
the package preserves the timestamps of installed files, print-PLIST
will most likely not catch them (e.g. using pax's -pe flag).

The location of manual pages is now configurable, although I do not
know how the whole thing works.  Somebody else will probably tell you
