After a big of digging, I discovered the immediate problem and it does
not have anything to do with FreeBSD's ACL implementations [1].
FreeBSD's package building tool, poudriere has an option to use tmpfs
for some of the file systems including the working directories, however
I do not believe tmpfs supports ACLs.  When I turn this option off, so
that tmpfs is not used, the build finishes successfully without any

Should ACL support be required to _build_ Emacs, even if that build will
itself support ACLs?

[1] UFS has both POSIX and NFSv4 ACLs, while ZFS only supports NFSv4 ACLs.
