pkg-static: Insufficient privileges to add packages

I am running a testport on www/py-django-tastypie

My goal it to add an option for using www/django16 as well as www/django (1.7).

The error I get is:

$ sudo poudriere testport -v -j 101amd64 -p testing -z testing -i -o www/py-django-tastypie
===>    Verifying install for py27-django>=1.5 in /usr/ports/www/py-django16
===>   Installing existing package /packages/All/py27-django16-1.6.11.txz
pkg-static: Insufficient privileges to add packages

But because I'm running testport interactively, I see I can install the port it mentions:

root at 101amd64-testing-testing:~ # pkg install /packages/All/py27-django16-1.6.11.txz

The following 1 package(s) will be affected (of 0 checked):

New packages to be INSTALLED:

The process will require 27 MiB more space.

Proceed with this action? [y/N]: y

Why does the testport fail?
