I should have been more clear in my last response to your question.
You did not do anything wrong when you tried to install chromium. It
is currently unavailable as shown in the website specified in my last

the issue that caused it not to be built and in due time will be
Once it has been added to the FreeBSD repository it will be available
the next time you invoke "pkg update". This can be verified by running
"pkg search chromium" after your update.
