I'm confused here, but that's nothing new...
I'm running 4.8-RELEASE-p4.

I can read what Jerry says, but does he mean that /var/empty should not
be deleted, or that /var/tmp/temproot/var/empty should not be deleted?

These two directories are completely different, and if I'm rebuilding
from source for, say, the second time, then /var/tmp/temproot/var/empty
might exist and definitly should be deleted, right?
