pkg question

I historically build stuff from ports, for all the obvious reasons, but 
i can of course see the benefits of using binary packages

I'm confused re the below though, can someone please enlighten me as to 
why bind-tools would need removed in this scenario, and why a deprecated 
version of perl would be required (and perl 5.28 is installed)?

llvm is obviously not a quick port to build.

(i'm hoping perhaps i'm doing something wrong here)

System is FBSD 11.2, amd64

pkg/FreeBSD.conf is: url: "pkg+${ABI}/latest",


# pkg upgrade llvm60
