This problem has been recurring on my laptop (5.2.1-RELEASE-p9) for the past few weeks and I'm scratching my head.
Very frequently, I'll go to portinstall something, and I'll get several stop errors, and the build will fail.
But if I do a "rm -rf /usr/ports", then re-cvsup my ports collection, I can successfully build whatever port I was trying at the time. However, a few days later (or whatever), I'll try to build another port, and it will start all over. I delete /usr/ports, cvsup again, then I'm fine. This has happened several times over the past few weeks and the whole manual cvsup'ing to refresh my entire /usr/ports every time is getting old. (Although I've noticed I can sometimes get away with just deleting the /usr/ports/... directory of the port I'm trying to build and cvsup'ing again.)
I'm keeping my ports current the same way on a workstation in at work, and I've had no problems there, so I know it has to be something that's wrong on my laptop.
Here is the output of the latest port failure (fwbuilder):
