fwiw, before the intrusion 3 months ago, I had been able to build
native ARM packages with a loaned system. Now, granted, this was
pretty slow, but it was a useful reference point.
Unfortunately none of the packages or logfiles are online at this time.
When I was at MeetBSD in California, I learned that the Foundation is
sponsoring an effort to get emulation for tier-2 machines in working
order, and that this will be the plan for package building going forwards.
This is just FYI so you don't spend a great deal of time on each
individual port. I know the problems will be hard to solve.
