You shouldn't take pkglint so serious that you add such stuff. :)
Please remove it.

Can you check what 'make show-var VARNAME=PLIST' and
'make show-var VARNAME=PLIST_SRC' say - does the latter file exist, does
it contain the correct source? Do both variables contain the right

If that doesn't give any good hints, try (after a 'make clean') 'make
extract ; make plist PKG_DEBUG_LEVEL=2'. Feel free to post the full output
of this here.
