Out of swap space/MAKEJOBSUNSAFE=YES

Dear kind folks,
# pkg update
# pkg upgrade
Was not getting updates. Version of pkg was at 1.12 or so, I ran portsnap
fetch extract, portsnap fetch update and updated pkg to version 1.13 and I
was able to get firefox-esr which was removed by pkg. I installed
postmaster and decided to update the system to newer versions. I cannot
update chromium, run out of swap space it is 4GB by system have 8 GB or 16
GB of memory and rust, chromium all fail to build. Machine was working
beautifully, but I had lost firefox-esr, and out of desperation went with
ports like old times. I had run into problems, but not as bad as this. I
can't remember/recall if I ran
# postmaster -ay or -nay to avoid answering y/n questions.
How can I overcome these problems to update with ports and for chromium,
firefox-esr, Libreoffice, etc to build successfully? Can I create a swap
file?, Does MAKEJOBSUNSAFE=YES work?
I also have lost lumina desktop, I do not mind getting KDE/xfce or other
desktop. The command to boot lumina changed, and I cannot find out reading
/usr/ports/UPDATING file, I have removed some files/pkgs that conflicted.
Ideas/suggestions/advice are appreciated.
