There is no guarantee that Apple's open source releases will build. Darwinbuild tries to make things easier by providing a soft chroot and the plists which let you define patches and environment variables. But darwinbuild is not magic, sometimes you have to load other roots manually to satisfy dependencies, and sometimes you have to come up with patches for the source. 

FWIW, I tried to build SmartCardServices and SecurityTokend on 10F569, but my xcodebuild is crashing, so I don't even get as far as you do. 

If you come up with patches, either for Darwinbuild itself or to make Apple projects build, then please do attach them to your ticket(s) so we can integrate them.
