    overview of all packages installed on your system (e.g. a
    /usr/local/sbin/pkg-static info -g -Ea).

I have seen reports of this error before, but I have no idea what causes it. I have not been able to reproduce it on any of my test machines, which makes it difficult to investigate and fix. I would appreciate any help in finding out what causes this.

Found a lot of similar problems in the net. Seems it does not find python. Try replace 
USES= python:2,build
USES= python:2.7,build
Comment 3 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-02-03 03:16:46 UTC
/!\ node8-8.9.3: Makefile warnings, please consider fixing /!\

USES=python:2 is deprecated, use USES=python:2.7
Comment 4 Bradley T. Hughes freebsd_committer 2018-02-05 09:39:35 UTC
Another user sent me an email with the following:

"I was finally able to build node version 9.4.0 on FreeBSD 11-1. It turns out that the problem was using python build with the "DEBUG" option ON. Therefore I set the python "DEBUG" option OFF and rebuild python then I was able to build node successfully. Hopefully you can reproduce the error."

I have not tried to reproduce this locally yet, but it seems that there is at least a workaround.
Comment 5 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2018-02-05 09:43:55 UTC
I was not able to reproduce it with 10.4 and 11.1.

I can confirm it stemming from the DEBUG option of python27. These combinations failed for me: 103amd64 + python27-2.7.12(DEBUG) + node-{6.7.0,6.8.0,6.9.1} (in a ports tree roughly dated end 2016). As the other people, there was no reasonable error and I did not dig deeper.
Comment 7 w.schwarzenfeld freebsd_triage 2019-02-10 23:52:46 UTC
Is this still relevant?
Comment 8 Shaun 2019-02-11 03:59:28 UTC
(In reply to w.schwarzenfeld from comment #7)

I can't speak to the original conditions, as the system where I was experiencing this problem has since been upgraded from FreeBSD 11.1 to 11.2, and the version of node in ports has advanced from 8.5.0 to 11.9.0. Under this environment, node builds without any errors.

I'm assuming this was fixed somewhere along the way, so I'll close out the bug.
