For the record, downgrading pkg to 1.4.12 and poudriere to 3.1.2 did
not fix this issue for me.

The port that I am trying to testport on FreeBSD 10.1 is
math/plplot-ada. The testport permission issues do not occur with the
port as it is currently - only after making the changes I have
proposed to math/plplot here:
