devel/py-importlib-metadata/Makefile has been changed several times in
the last few days. It probably differs between your two systems.

In Makefile 1.8 and 1.9 the file permissions were fixed automatically.
In Makefile 1.10 that fix got removed, without any helpful commit
message. The DISTFILE of that package still contains world-writable files.

Maybe it is even a good idea to fix the pkgsrc infrastructure so that
the file permissions are fixed automatically right after post-extract,
to prevent this class of mistakes from causing any manual work. We
wouldn't notice any upstream packaging mistakes anymore, and maybe we
just shouldn't care.
