The Ports ( http://www.freebsd.org/ports ) are described as having support as quoted below:
"The Ports Collection supports the latest release on the FreeBSD-CURRENT and FreeBSD-STABLE branches. Older releases are not supported and may or may not work correctly with an up-to-date ports collection."
By the description alone, it doesn't describe that it supports -RELEASE or -RELEASE-p# systems.
Rephrase the above statement at the above URL to include -RELEASE systems. Maybe a phrasing similar to:
"The Ports Collection supports the latest release on the FreeBSD-CURRENT, FreeBSD-STABLE branches and FreeBSD-RELEASE under the production release major versions. Older releases are not supported and may or may not work correctly with an up-to-date ports collection."
