In the past, whenever I encounter issues like this, I remove the
offending directory and then run svnlite update. It will repopulate the
removed directory with all the required files.

 (1) cd /usr/ports
 (2) rm -rf misc/freebsd-doc-en
 (3) svnlite update
 (4) cd misc/freebsd-doc-en
 (5) make install clean

Give it a shot. It might work for you.
