The problem is
  :info:build sed: RE error: illegal byte sequence

Our usual fix for this is to add
  build.env LANG=C
to the Portfile. Try doing that; you can get the location of the Portfile
using $(port file pike). If that helps, please tell us so we can commit this
change. Please note that the next selfupdate will usually revert this change,
so don't run selfupdate right after editing the file.

The pike port is also outdated. If you're interested in pike and would be
willing to maintain it, consider reading
(especially section 7.3).
