thanks for the info. I've not yet found the cause; configuration
in ports and poudriere are both the default ones and whereas the
'make' in the ports runs without an error with poudriere it stops
reproducible with

that's OK with me, I'm only upgrading on this one machine.

thanks for the hints.
I updated the ports tree and started poudriere with my list of ports
to install (115; already installed is only the base system 11.1 from
the boot CD + poudriere). Due to dependencies the first poudriere run
(some weeks ago) tried to build approximately 1000 ports (all but 1 failed,
4 skipped). After the ports tree update: Queued: 584.
It is not yet finished (Built: 369, Failed: 1, Skipped: 4, Ignored: 0,
Tobuild: 210), but after more than 26 hours (degree of parallelism: 4,
old computer) I didn't want to wait until tomorrow and give you at least
a provisional result: with pkg upgrade I still see

I don't know the origin of the '123 candidates'; my list of ports
to install has 115 entries and the actual list poudriere is handling
is much longer due to dependencies.
Do I have so specify the repository created by poudriere explicitly?
I thought that the entry

in /usr/local/etc/pkg/repos/FreeBSD.conf was enough.
