It was very inefficient when moving to 12.0 as many ports in the list, of course, were dependent on other ports, but then got recompiled, sometimes multiple times. I know I ended up in a make loop where came was compiled over and over again until I aborted, listed the current ports, differ on the previous ports, and picked a port I though would have a lot of reps to restart the compile. I then did this several more times to get back to where I had been on 11.x

I used "portmaster -fa" in the past.

I don't know.

12.x has support until 2024. So a 12.3 is in the pipeline. 12.4 probably also. 11.4 was the latest 11.x release AFAIK.

Might help to do another attempt. Especially if you are using custom port settings instead of pkgs.
