Disregard.  The error was in /usr/local/etc/ports.conf, and completely my fault:

misc/mc: CONFIGURE_ARGS+=--without-vfs

I don't remember adding this line, but evidently I got distracted at
the time and never tested whether it worked.

Maybe it would be useful if the ports system flashed a message along
the lines of "using settings from /usr/local/etc/ports.conf" as a
reminder to people like me ;-)

Sorry for the noise.
