I'm not seeing any problems here. My laptop runs this:
FreeBSD 10.3-STABLE i386
I've got 765 packages installed, including some big things like the
GNOME and MATE desktops, some KDE apps, Firefox, Thunderbird,
LibreOffice, OpenOffice, etc.
hairball:~ 107%pkg info | wc -l
I build my own packages (about 1500 ports) using poudriere running on an
amd64 machine running various flavors of head, including 11.0-CURRENT,
11.0-ALPHA*, and currently 12.0-CURRENT (it gets updated from source on
a fairly regular basis). I rarely see failures on the i386 packages,
and when I do, the same port usually fails on amd64 as well. On my last
package build run, I got zero build failures for FreeBSD 10 packages,
either amd64 or i386. The only two build failures that I did observer
were when building packages for 12.0-CURRENT amd64.
