The makefiles don't install blender on the local system. Instead you can
make a tar.gz ball with the command 'make release'. This is a similar
tar ball as the ones you can download from blender.org, and which the
/usr/ports/graphics/blender port uses.

The port installs blender on your system, but the tar.gz you make
yourself can best be just extracted and run from your home directory.

Or you can put the tar ball in /usr/ports/distfiles and edit the
/usr/ports/graphics/blender/Makefile and distinfo, that way you can
install your own built blender in the 'real' system location ;-)

Succes !
