Two slashes here?

Is this correct? In my opinion, the correct path name
should be /usr/local/etc/, _not_ in caps!

Maybe an error in the port's configuration?

That step should be completed by the "post-install" target
in /usr/ports/textproc/asciidoc/Makefile. Is there some
variable, like ${ETCDIR}, set wrongly?

You could forcedly register the installation of the port that
you have "manually completed".

Check if you have anything "suspicious" set in /etc/make.conf
or in your environment that might override the logic of the
Makefile. Check the Makefile as well (I've checked 8.6.6's
on my 8.2 home system).

Just to be sure, make clean and re-checkout the port, then
try again.
