And that happened intermittently and in such a way that doing things like activating verbose mode (port -v) made the issue go away?

I just noticed that pextlib comes with its own *old* setmode.c (still uses K&R-style declarations...). I'm not enough of an autoconf expert to know how to add pkgconfig test for libbsd if setmode isn't available natively so I'm trying to update the included setmode.c . Not easy either ...
