FreeBSD unmaintained ports which are currently marked broken

As part of an ongoing effort to reduce the number of problems in
the FreeBSD ports system, we periodically notify users of ports
that are marked as "broken" in their Makefiles.  In many cases
these ports are failing to compile on some subset of the FreeBSD
build environments.  One common problem is that recent versions of
FreeBSD use clang instead of gcc by default.  Another common problem
is that the compiles succeed on the i386 and amd64 architecture
(e.g. the common Intel PC), but fail on one or more of the other
architectures due to assumptions about things such as size of various
types, byte-alignment issues, and so forth.

In occasional cases we see that the same port may have different
errors in different build environments.  The script that runs on the
build cluster uses heuristics to try to 'guess' the error type to
help you isolate problems, but it is only a rough guide.

One more note: on occasion, there are transient build errors seen
on the build farm.  Unfortunately, there is not yet any way for this
algorithm to tell the difference (humans are much, much better at
this kind of thing.)

The errors are listed below.  In the case where the same problem
exists on more than one build environment, the URL points to the
latest errorlog for that type.  (By 'build environment' here we
mean 'combination of 8.x/9.x/10.x/-current with target architecture'.)
