Ah, thank you very much.

As soon I get into howto create a bootable image, I'll try. I have both the
Pine64 and the Odroid-C2.

While 12-CURRENT (as of today) compiles now very well (buildworld and
buildkernel produce no errors while building world/kernel and using the built
world as the foundation of an ARM64 poudriere-jail), there are some issues with
the ports tree system. With recent sources, ports-mgmt/pkg fails to build
with arm64 jail and so the whole ports tree.
