Most users would not care about building stable/9 on a stable/10 host.
There are only a few people care about being able to do that.
People who use poudriere to build a jail to build ports would care.
People who are building products base on stable/9, but need
to use a stable/10 (or newer) host would care, but that number of people
is small.

That might work.   Is using the devel/fmake port sufficient for using fmake?
If I typed "make something", is there a way inside the make environment to
detect if bmake or fmake was invoked, and error out appropriately?
