I had two installed:
The following ports are currently installed:
  tidy @4.9.36_0+universal
  tidy @5.0.0_0+universal (active)

Nothing was using 4.9.36_0+universal, so I removed it, forcibly removed  5.0.0_0+universal, and reinstalled it.  After that, /opt/local/include/tidybuffio.h existed (so I suppose it must have been clobbered somehow), and libextractor upgraded successfully.  Thanks!
