You could have run it as your normal administrative user. That's what most users do, and that works for most ports, but not some; see previous link.

Instead of running "xcodebuild -license" as the root user, could you try being your normal administrative user and running "sudo xcodebuild -license"? I seem to remember another user reporting there was a difference between the two.
