For giggles, I temporarily swapped the one already in /opt/local/bin with the somewhat older binary supplied by Apple, and it did the same...leading me to suppose that although they perhaps shouldn't behave that way, it's something in the input they're fed that has them running indefinitely (and using all the CPU they can get while they're doing it, too).

I wasn't. But I uninstalled all the ports and started over; and this time, it got past that successfully and is still going. Something I changed in between must have made a difference. Not sure what, although I had turned off the Sophos on-access scanning, since that considerably slows a rebuild of so many ports. Could have been something else, though. Crossing fingers that it keeps going, with nothing more that requires so many steps back to keeping going forward. :-)
