ports(7): Update instructions for package target
Packages default to ending up in a different location compared to the documentation, so catch up to the implementation by referring to the location where packages can usually be found if no environment variables have been set. While here, also update the mention of the file extension to match the txz format that packages use. PR: 253179, 224370 Reported by: rwatson, jeromer at fastmail dotnet
