After manually creating this directory everything works fine. Would this be considered a bug in the Portfile or the software itself? Could this even be fixed in the Portfile, since the problem is with a directory in the user's home path?

Portfiles can't touch your home directory. Sounds like a bug in XQuartz then. Could you report it to them?
