main [so: 14] can run ports that are built for 13.* .

So pkg can be pointed at a 13.1-RELEASE quarterly
instead of latest and forced to get materials from
the quarterly, such as installing git from the

There is some chance that you might have to use
pkg for some of the quarterly activity via the
likes of:

env ABI=FreeBSD:13:aarch64 pkg . . .

It is still going to be a while before a armv7 git
shows up based on the fixed libunwind vintage. The
active build of main's latest, when I looked, still
predated the libunwind update for when it started.
The fix availability for main waits on the next
build of main's latest.
