It looks like it's trying to create the package without first installing
the port...  which is weird, since "package" implies "install".

You're sure it's not a permissions issue?  Is your script running as
root inside the jail?  Is /usr/local writable by root inside the jail?

You're not trying to build multiple ports in paralell?

This would be easier to diagnose if you showed us the complete log for a
single port...
