Do you have your ports tree mounted over NFS? You are having a problem getting
an exclusive lock on one of the files during the install process of this
port. I have experienced this exact same issue when dealing with a ports tree
mounted over NFS.
I solved the problem temporarily by copying
the /usr/ports/emulation/linux_base-8 directory to another location on local
storage and make installing from there.
However, after much frustration with similar issues and issues of
synchronization (I had a common ports tree mapped on four FreeBSD machines) I
decided to move the ports back to local. I merely NFS map the distfiles
Hope this information is of some help
