When I looked at what pkg would provide it was older. So on a Pine64+ 2GB [an aarch64 context] I did an svnlite update for /usr/ports and then tried to build ports-mgmt/synth . Synth is written in ada and so indirectly then attempts a lang/gcc6-aux build if it is not already in place. [gcc5-aux likely would not support aarch64.] I've no direct interest in lang/gcc6-aux or ada as stands. But indirectly such is involved in what I wanted to explore. I've seen material quoted from a exp-run that reported that about 54(?) ports were then blocked by lang/gcc6-aux not building. (So some problems might not be aarch64 specific despite my example context: the "54" material was likely not for an aarch64 context.) === Mark Millard markmi at dsl-only.net _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
