postPortBuild hook question (misbehavior?)

I've starting taking advantage of the hooks capability, specifically the
postPortBuild hook. It's been working well, but a specific scenario did
not work as I expected.
Case: queue archivers/ocaml-zip
Previously unbuilt dependencies: lang/ocaml and devel/ocaml-findlib
The lang/ocaml port was attempted and failed to build. The
postPortBuild hook fired as expected.
devel/ocaml-findlib and the queued port archives/ocaml-zip were marked
failed "D" but the postPortBuild hook did NOT fire.
I expected that it would fire two more times and mark these ports failed
for the dependency reason.
1) Does anyone else consider this a bug?
2) If not, what can I modify to change this behavior?
