I wouldn't say that. I've been building it for years, and in my
experience it's just like any other port, mostly it builds,
occasionally it doesn't, when it doesn't I just stick to the old
version until it does. Its complexity make it a bit more unreliable,
but not radically so.

OTOH I use security branches and i386, so I have every advantage.
