The OS was initially installed onto a SSD, then 3xsata disks were added
for a zfs array. This array is /storage and /usr is symlinked to

I'm running portupgrade -af in the hope this fixes things, or if it
fails hopefully the errors will show where the problem is. It'll take a
while as nearly 1400 ports are installed, then again this desktop is
quick. At the same time, I spun up a newly created, small, bhyve
11.1-stable instance, installed ports and it's now building bluefish
with all its dependencies.

I expect that you're right, that there's something broken in the
environment. In which case I'll probably have to return the machine to a
more-or-less pristine state, delete .local and install what I currently
require. Maybe some cruft has built up over the years that's causing
problems now. It's been a freebsd desktop since v9.
