Here are some suggestions:

Do you for some reason have a directory named "files" in 
/usr/ports/devel/oniguruma? If so, you could rename that directory, or 
remove that directory and its contents.

You could also verify manually if devel/oniguruma builds correctly:

pushd /usr/ports/devel/oniguruma
make build
make clean

If it builds correctly, then portmaster does something unexpected.

devel/oniguruma builds cleanly on one of my systems, and I'm at 

Maybe you should update both your source and ports trees, and if 
possible install an updated kernel and a freshly built world.
