ARJ builds OK here on 10.1.

My first thought is the OP has something unusual in /etc/make.conf.

My second thought is whether you actually need ARJ. ClamAV evidently
has it as a dependency, but I think it probably shouldn't given that
ARJ archives are rarely seen "in the wild" these days.

In any case you can exclude arj from the rebuild with:

portmaster [options] -x arj
