For this very simple port:
This error occurs without the patch:

The cause is the empty bandit= tag in setup.cfg:
> data_files =
> bandit =
I am not familiar with 'autoplist', somebody should take a look why this empty tag triggers the error in plist.
Is this still relevant? Yuri, can you assess?

patch to add special handling for directoried with USE_PYTHON=autoplist
Some python packages adds empty directories entries to the list of installed files. python.mk blindly copies these entries to the plist file, and then such plist produces some strange effects (e.g. pkg fails to calculate sha256).
I've spotted this when tried to update py-buildbot port.
Attached patch adds a check if the given entry is a directory and adds @dir prefix to directory entries.
I can attach my version of buildbot port that reproduces this problem.
