They weren't the dependencies that I expected.  For example, I had
perl-5.18 installed and as the default version in make.conf.  I'm still
getting used to some subtleties of pkg(ng)/poudrieire, so I'm not sure
exactly why this solved the problem, but instead of the nullfs mount of
/var/db/ports on /usr/local/etc/poudriere.d/options, I used poudriere
options and things seem to be working as expected now.
