I have built games/cowsay in my own poudriere. In the manpage, it says:

```
FILES
       /wrkdirs/usr/ports/games/cowsay/work/stage/usr/local/share/cows holds a
       sample set of cowfiles.  If your COWPATH is not explicitly set, it
       automatically contains this directory.
```

Notice that the stagedir from building has leaked into the manpage. And if I build the port as a user in /tmp/port, and look at the staged manpage at /tmp/port/work/stage/usr/local/man/man1/cowsay.1.gz, then I see this:

```
.SH FILES
.B /tmp/port/work/stage/usr/local/share/cows
holds a sample set of cowfiles.  If your
.B COWPATH
```

.. and while the script explicitly handles a "normal" (or maybe "old-fashioned, before staging was a thing") prefix, it substitutes a full prefix (with staging, it seems) in to the intermediate perl scripts -- and onwards into the manpages:

```
echo s,%PREFIX%,$PREFIX,\; >> install.pl
```
