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

Yeah, that's what I tried wen moving to 12.0 from 11.4 and it left a lot of cleaning up.

It just doesn't work the way my brain works, and I don't have a bunch of servers I need to keep updated, and the two servers I am running are different architecture. Something as simple as "hey, I want to install this one port" seemed overly complicated. I can see it's great when you have a cluster of servers and want to manage the updates on a dedicated server, but I don't need that.

That said:

 # pkg-static upgrade -f
 # portmaster install postfix dovecot 

So far, so good (I thought I would have to also redo MariaDB but it all seems to be working now, mail did not work until I recompiled Dovecot and Postfix, but I was expecting that.

So far the only thing that is new is an error about pam_opie, but that's for a new thread.

Incredible! One of the worst performances of my career and they never
	doubted it for a second.
