Can you remove the marker from the Makefile and just build it.
Let us know how it fails if it fails.

Remember that most ports committers don't have access to non
PC hardware (or don't have easy access to it), so they do
things blind. Once a port fails to build on an architecture
and no one helps out to fix it, they can only mark the port
as broken.
