This is perhaps the problem.

Hmm? The poudriere has the '-m svn' flag for creating jails. If one uses
this flag, the jail will always be newer than the host. If this is an
issue (which I do not understand if things are done in a jail, using the
toolchain of the jail) then this flag should be deleted from
poudriere, IMHO.
