Just for the record... I'm also able to start Skype from the command prompt.

I'm not sure if I really understand makefiles, but it seems to me that
/usr/local/share/skype are created with the following directive in
/usr/ports/net/skype/Makefile:
        @cd ${WRKSRC}/&&${COPYTREE_SHARE} "avatars icons sounds lang"
${PREFIX}/${SKYPEDIR}/

Maybe the directory should be created first? I.e. change it to the following:
        @${INSTALL} -d ${PREFIX}/${SKYPEDIR}
        @cd ${WRKSRC}/&&${COPYTREE_SHARE} "avatars icons sounds lang"
${PREFIX}/${SKYPEDIR}/
