Is there any variable that tells a port it is build for DragonFly?
Simply testing whether DFPORTSDIR is defined seems a little fragile, 
OSVERSION is fixed to 480102. Maybe setting DFVERSION to
__DragonFly_version in src/share/mk/ is a good idea?
A DragonFly (override) port should use If you want to
support DragonFly in a normal FreeBSD port, no additional magic beside
e.g. CPP (__DragonFly__) should be needed.
Let's take security/portaudit as an example. Matthew imported the new 
pkg_install version July 30th 2004, so I do not need to depend on the 
port. I'm supposed to conditionalize that on __DragonFly_version, but 
this information is not available in the ports Makefile.
