src. This was discussed on current@ in December; some amd64 ports do
not build when world is compiled with -O2 (even if the port itself is
built with -O), but build when world is recompiled with -O.
There was some analysis of the problem cause in the mailing list
thread (which you were CC'ed on), but no conclusion.

The issues have been reported, so someone either needs to fix them or
apply the workaround of reverting src to -O until the former can take
