@Ed/Andrew, can one of you assign yourselves to this issue please

Also worth noting whether/that these dependent port fixes should be MFH'd
Comment 2 Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2016-09-02 13:42:03 UTC
While looking at an arm64 objdump issue (PR 212308) I took a look at the top 50 or so failing ports by # of downstream skipped packages.

While looking at that, I noticed that the following ports that failed due to no sbrk:

devel/libgtop
devel/rvm
graphics/graphviz
lang/gauche
sysutils/bacula-client
sysutils/bacula5-client
sysutils/bareos-client
Comment 3 Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2017-01-31 04:56:37 UTC
See https://wiki.freebsd.org/arm64/ports#Missing_sbrk for the ports that have been marked BROKEN due to missing sbrk.  Note that graphics/graphviz has been fixed for missing sbrk; see https://svnweb.freebsd.org/ports/head/graphics/graphviz/files/patch-lib-vmalloc-vmhdr.h?view=markup&pathrev=426075 .
Comment 4 Jan Beich freebsd_committer 2018-05-17 12:49:34 UTC
Does the project plan to acquire another ports/ building box? thunderx1 is oversubscribed: -CURRENT builds are often weeks/months out of date and unnecessarily delay /latest updates for -RELEASE; full builds often crash. This makes QAing port fixes, finding regressions and figuring out remaining bustage harder.

When pkg-fallout@ mail will be enabled by default? Increasing buy-in from maintainers maybe necessary before promoting to Tier1 e.g.,
https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports/2017-July/109503.html
linimion@ does a tremendous job of classifying bustage via BROKEN lines but there're many mistakes, spoiling the effort and adding to the burnout. And I no longer have time to analyze/fix bustage in ports that don't matter to me (only ~100 ports are on my radar). Contributors with actual aarch64 hardware are still rare, so few notice how much bustage is left.
