My original request was:

"Can you recommend an (unofficial) repository with the PHP 7.2 port? I
need it to support a legacy installation of Moodle, but would not want
to use an outdated ports tree snapshot."

I think it's quite clear that the request was about a ports tree I can
build from. If not, sorry about that.

Nothing, actually, except my long-term preference for FreeBSD.

It just saddens me to see migrations from FreeBSD to Linux and never vice versa.
