I happened to fetch all three of them yesterday with the latest ports
tree. This included linux_devtools as well. 6 installed fine (both
ports). 7 installed fine after manually removing the remnants of 6
(both ports).  8 didn't install (linux_base) because it tried to mknod
null in ${WRKDIR}, which failed. So, yes I think it helps to update the
ports tree.
