With the help of Alexander Motin, I have now started limited package
builds on the Arm architecture.

Right now builds are only being done for a few hand-selected ports, and
only on arm-9 with pkgng.  No builds with the old pkg_* tools are
intended at this time.

For those of you with Arm systems, you should be able to install packages
just by setting USE_PKGNG="yes" in /etc/make.conf and then using pkg(8).
There are more details at .

Please let me know if how these packages work out for you.  Thanks.
