Some followup. The above installed 134 ports and worked:

[dan_at_empty:/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390] $ ls -l 
/var/ports/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390/work/pkg-message
-rw-r--r--  1 root  wheel  1808 Aug 10 22:31 
/var/ports/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390/work/pkg-message

Yes, there is.  make apply-slist

 From IRC came that suggestion, which, oddly enough, I was originally 
using before heading down this rabbit hole.

[root_at_empty /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390]# make apply-slist
/bin/sh: cannot create 
/var/ports/usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390/work/pkg-message: No such 
file or directory
*** Error code 2

Stop.
make: stopped in /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390
[root_at_empty /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390]#


Nope. That won't work.

The next suggestion was: make extract apply-slist

[root_at_empty /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390]# make extract apply-slist

dialog

[root_at_empty /usr/ports/x11/nvidia-driver-390]#

Success.

This approach also works for all the previous example where PKG_MESSAGE 
refers to something in the /work* directory

Thank you for coming to my TED talk.
