Looks like the problem would have been fixed in PR ports/141375, which modified
the cups-base port to create the directory in question.  As that fix was applied
on the 12th at 19:39 and the last pointyhat test on cups-pdf appears to have been
on the same day at 20:57 I reckon pointyhat just missed getting the fix for at
least one of its test cases by about >< that much.
