I am waiting for 11.x to come off RCs, then I will choose.  If it 
doesn't do that soon ( been waiting 4 months now), then I will go STABLE 
and use crochet to build for Raspberry pi.
I want to update this desktop first in case I make a mess of it.

Just don't know how the move ZFS Raid-Z will turn out.

I want to build the whole thing lock stock and barrel, ports too. Put 
the repository on a network and update all machines from there.
Want to use synth or pouderier (sp?)

I am a glutton for punishment,  What can I say.

Yes I was following that part

I would like to goto llvm ld so I don't have to do this again.

I am rebuilding my entire network and want to have all the machines 
using the same base and ports.

I will have two raspberrypi that handle DNS, NTP, NNTP and email ( full 
email server exim and dovcot2 plus fetchmail )

Right now this is on an old Dell lapdog using jails

I have a third raspberrypi 3 that I will try to run ningx (sp?), when 
FreeBSD goes pi 3.
