Currently, I do not plan to change away from release. Maybe I will find 
some time later to set up some testing environment.

Do you know which commit brought the bugfix? If I have to rebuild just a 
few modules or something, it would be easier to go back to release after 

I have tested your webcamd-0.1.24 patch. I had to apply some of it 
manually as patch tried to change /usr/ports/Makefile instead of 
/usr/ports/multimedia/webcamd/Makefile. Unfortunately, 0.1.24 does not 
fix my issue.
