Building meta/xfce4

At the end of compilation for textproc/py-expat, the script tries to make a directory in .error called check-file-prefix. However at the start of building this package, the script removes the .error directory. So when it reaches the end, we get this message: cannot create /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/py-expat/work/.error/check-file-prefix directory nonexistent

And it errors out.

Build textproc/py-expat
Sadly, I don't have the time to figure out how pkgsrc internals work to actually fix the broken line, but my simple solution was to mkdir  /usr/pkgsrc/textproc/py-expat/work/.error/ after building py-expat started, but before it tried to make the check-file-prefix directory.
