ok, quick read through the original post again:

checking if /usr/bin/cpp requires -traditional... configure: error:
/usr/bin/cpp does not preserve whitespace with or without
-traditional.  I don't know what to do.
===>  Script "configure" failed unexpectedly.
Please report the problem to x11 at [maintainer] and attach the
"/usr/ports/devel/imake/work/imake-1.0.4/config.log" including the output of
the failure of your make command. Also, it might be a good idea to provide
an overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
/usr/local/sbin/pkg info -g -Ea).
*** [do-configure] Error code 1

the actual problem is imake, not ssvnc:   I'll let Niclas comment more on this.
