What are the implications of running the splunk forwarder on a non-standard port? Do I have to change anything in the deployment server to look for deployment clients on a different port? Or am I going to see normal behavior without any other changes whatsoever?

You'll need to add a web.conf file in your custom apps $SPLUNK_HOME/etc/apps/deploymentapps/appname/system/local/ folder. You can put the configuration there:
mgmtHostPort = x.x.x.x:8090
As long as your deployment server continues to listen on the same management port and you've defined that in your deploymentclient.conf file, you should be fine.
