If you would like to try to build Sage anyway (to help porting),

export the variable 'SAGE_PORT' to something non-empty.

Maybe the issue is due to the blank spaces or ' in the name of the directory in which you are installing SageMath:

/home/user/Can't Think of a Name/SageMath

Could you retry in a directory the name of which does not contain any blank space nor ' character?
