I have both graphics/ocaml-lablgl and x11-toolkits/ocaml-labltk installed
using 8.5 with no issues. The Makefiles expressly list 84 and 85 as usable.
math/R simply requires 8.4 or higher.
I suspect most/all of the listed ports already work with supported
versions. So should these just be patched to change 84+ or 84,85 to just
85? If so, I can submit some later today, but removing 84 won't break most
(all?) whether the ports are patched or not.
