This turns out to be due to our old friend pyparsing. FreeBSD recently 
upgraded from 2.4.7 to 3.0.4 which does not work. The module is used by 
esp-idf/tools/ldgen. I tried the latest (3.0.6) which also breaks the build.

Looking at the espressif esp-idf master branch I find that they *still* 
are stuck < 2.4.0. The workaround that I used was to put a copy the 
2.4.7 version of pyparsing.py into the ldgen directory. Looking at the 
releases page:


The newest version that is "acceptable" is 2.3.1 which was release in 
January of 2019...

I opened an issue with espressif, maybe they can be coaxed into 
upgrading ldgen to work with newer versions.
