I haven't looked, but another possibility is that the permissions are
coming from the dist file archive itself, and some part of the extracted
archive is just moved into place thus preserving the bad permissions.
Something like this happened to me once with www/serf when it was built
as root.  See [1] for a long thread on that, but the accepted fix was to
just add a post-extract chmod to fix the permissions.
