Turning off both options and trying a manual make seems to end with the same error.

A copy of the make log is at

Neither file is present.

bob at nemesis:/usr/ports/devel/json-glib % cc -v
FreeBSD clang version 11.0.1 (git at llvmorg-11.0.1-0-g43ff75f2c3fe)
Target: aarch64-unknown-freebsd14.0
Thread model: posix

Not sure I follow; -DBATCH refers to config options, would that affect job number?

The last major port compiled was www/chromium, might there be some cleanup required
before starting another compilation? I've always thought that ports communicated only
through installed files, but if they use one another's source or object files it 
would be easier to encounter incompatibilities. If a global  "make clean" will
simplify things it'll be worth the wait.

Thanks for your help!
