The Project tries to avoid it but occasional build failures on the
development branch are very likely to occur.  As a new user, you
would be much better off starting with a release branch.

I think that's being unfair.  Do Open, Net or DFly have an equivalent
to the tinderboxes that do automated test builds and report failures?
And, since you have replied to an ARM failure, DragonflyBSD would not
be an option since it doesn't support ARM.
