extract: execute '/usr/local/bin/xmlcatmgr -sc 
/usr/local/share/sgml/catalog.ports add linuxdoc/catalog'
xmlcatmgr: unbalanced arguments for `add' action
pkg_add: command '/usr/local/bin/xmlcatmgr -sc 
/usr/local/share/sgml/catalog.ports add linuxdoc/catalog' failed

That looks like a warning from xmlcatmgr which may or may not be important, but the package apparently added itself completely (no
errors were reported by pkg_add).

It may not make a lot of difference, but I am now wondering how to
recognize an "error reported by pkg_add" since this:

pkg_add: command '/usr/local/bin/xmlcatmgr -sc 
/usr/local/share/sgml/catalog.ports add linuxdoc/catalog' failed

looks like one to me, but apparently it isn't.

/usr/local/* files are installed by a package, in this case run as part of a particular package installation script, and this failure is dutifully reported by pkg_add.

Just taking the xmlcatmgr message at face value, it looks as if
some addition that linuxdoc intended to make in some catalog did
not get done.  Anything following that step in the postinstall
script may also not have gotten done.  My gut suspicion is that
there is something wrong with the linuxdoc postinstall script
-- or perhaps linuxdoc has an unstated dependency which I don't
happen to have installed -- rather than something wrong with
xmlcatmgr.  PR time, I guess :(

Yes, that is the next step. It works for many others though, so the problem is likely to be more subtle than "it is completely broken".
