12-CURRENT won't configure to download packagesite.txz yet

All the files


I edit time after time for
{$ABI}  which gives FreeBSD:11:i386  but I am on 12-CURRENT i386
Anytime I try to attune to
freebsd:12:x86:32        or
FreeBSD:12:i386           ...
it downloads the packagesite again, as it does in the ABI example, but a terse
error of wrong architecture, etc, and a fail to do anything to upgrade to  Pkg-12.

Can the proper file be rename upstream to what its architecture in simpler terms:
like packagesite-i386-12.txz and a message printed upon de-TXZ the file so that
the proper nomenclature is given to put into each of those three files above
so that the generic packagesite.txz will not error out upon download?
Or, put the instructions in /usr/src/UPDATING ?? since it is part of base? 

Or some other way to de-showstopper this v11 April 2016 CURRENT to v12 Feb 2017 CURRENT
upgrade which still has failed to enable seamonkey-2.46_5 to run non-segfault [ ie cannot run ]
vs seamonkey-2.46_4 which four days ago ran without EVER segfaulting??  And cannot build
from ports for obscure .h clang-header file related reasons?
