About 1900 fewer packages built than on the previous 5.x build,
although there were only about another 500 ports that failed to build
(the rest were not built because they depend on a broken package).

Most of the new breakage (on i386) is from 3 or 4 causes, and should
be mostly mechanical to fix.  I'll try and coordinate an effort to fix
these problems on ports@ once the new gcc is committed, and we develop
some sample patches to fix the various new kinds of breakage to
demonstrate to others how to do it.
