According to the following website chromium failed for an unknown reason:

This website monitors the building of the various packages for
FreeBSD release 10.1 amd64. There are different websites for
different versions.  It is generally useful to provide the output of
"uname -a" when specifying a problem. If that had been provided it
would be possible to steer you in the direction of the build site for
your system.

I am personally impressed with all the information provided by this
site.  My only disappointment is that it does not provide a date/time
when the build is finished and available as an updated repository.  A
date stamp would be useful as an output of "pkg stat".

Cheers ...
