Sounds like you need to install your source tree...

At the command prompt:
$ su
Password: <ssh>
# /stand/sysintall

Go through the sysinstall as follows:

Select 'src' from the menu and select OK

select the appropriate media to install the src tree from.

Then exit sysinstall, the src tree is installed.

Then try to make the port again.
