emulators/virtualbox-ose core dumps on builds

Hello all:

I'm running 
  FreeBSD 12.0-CURRENT #0 r320599: Mon Jul  3 15:34:15 UTC 2017     
  root at releng3.nyi.freebsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC 
with /usr/ports at svn r450591.  I *just* pulled a brand new ports
tree, so I'm reasonably confident it is in good shape.

I've been having problems (for the past month, over several revs)
building emulators/virtualbox-ose, sadly it looks like
toolchain components are dumping core (see attached log, with an ar.core
that probably shouldn't be there.

I've noticed that kmk_redirect -rti (the failing command) means to
accept input from stdin, but then a filename is provided next.  It
doesn't seem the command make is running pipes data into the process.

I've dug around a bit the vb-ose src tree but I cannot for the life of
me find the offending kmk_redirect -rti command or how it is generated
--- I was hoping to at least confirm that the command line provided
RuntimeR3.a.ar-script is being generated and to remove the -i spec.

I suspect someone at vbox at freebsd.org would be faster at this than I.
Of course you could also tell me if I'm burrowing down a rabbit-hole
with a red-herring at the end :/

TiA for any help you can provide,

over at just the right moment and be the next IBM."
