It looks like the current version of the port doesn't have the option
to pull in libxml2 to enable this feature.
Can you try out this patch and let me know if it solves your issue?

The following commands will download the patch into your home
directory, apply the changes to the port and build and install a
version of
cfengine with xml support

$ cd ~
$ fetch
$ cd /usr/ports
$ patch < ~/cfengine36-libxml.patch
$ cd /usr/ports/sysutils/cfengine36
$ sudo make WITH="LIBXML2" install

Let me know if you have any problems.
