Building ports on 10.0-RELEASE is lots more trouble than 9.2-RELEASE.

10.0-RELEASE built 874,  & 9.2-RELEASE built 953 & still making, with*/Makefile.local
 cd /usr/ports/packages/All ; /bin/ls -1 | wc -l

10.0-RELEASE has 40 DUDS, & 9.2-RELEASE has 7 DUDS so far in

Lot of broken ports in 10.0-RELEASE are cc errors, (Clang, 9.2 was gcc).
Some are Stage failures.  New tools breaking, typical of a .0 release.

I was tempted to 10 by man urtwn (4) (WLAN), but then 10 src/ ripped
out bind, & 10.0 ports wasted time to delivered less.  9.2-RELEASE is better.
