The ports tree is now frozen in preparation for the 6.3 and 7.0
releases.  This means that all commits need to be explicitly approved by
portmgr.  In general, only security fixes and build/install/deinstall
fixes for those two branches will be allowed.  Please see the portmgr
policy page for a precise description of which commits are allowed when:

If you have some spare time during the freeze, please help us improve
the current state of the ports.  For a list of ports currently marked
broken, see. http://portsmon.freebsd.org/portsconcordanceforbroken.py

Also, see error logs from pointyhat:
