I'll let you know. But it will be a while for the results: I just
started another build experiment with:

poudriere bulk -j zrFBSDx64CjailArmV7 -w -c -f ~/armv7-origins.txt

This is based on /usr/ports having -r449313 . (I updated based on
your question.)

It will likely take 2-4 hours to get that far in the 338
packages it is attempting to build.

(I'm more experimenting with building than using the
results currently. Previously my port builds were
all native and via portmaster .)
