For quite some time, iSCSI target has been integrated into base.
Deprecate this port in favor of one of the following:
* "istgt" (/usr/ports/net/istgt/), which is a newer iSCSI target, originally
written for FreeBSD and also used by FreeNAS, etc.
* the native iSCSI target is supported starting with FreeBSD 10.0-RELEASE
What release of FreeBSD got iSCSI in base? Or in other words, is it in base for FreeBSD 8, 9, and 10?

iSCSI can be considered as two sides of the same coin... an initiator and a target
iscsi-target is originally from NetBSD's implementation from 2006
The base target is available as of 10.0-REL. Users of earlier are suggested to
An initiator was in base further back, I think integration began in 2007
Ref: iscontrol(8) and iscsi_initiator(4)
So really the port shouldn't be removed, but only set to IGNORE if the machine is on FreeBSD release 10 or later, right?
A commit references this bug:
Date: Tue Jul 29 13:21:05 UTC 2014
New revision: 363316
Submitted by: maintainer
Approved by: portmgr (implicit, not staged)
Port marked DEPRECATED.
Thanks for reporting
Note that DEPRECATED was used without EXPIRATION_DATE which is normally frowned upon, but the EXPIRATION_DATE gets set anyway to 2014-08-31 due to the port not being staged. So I think it should get removed by September anyway.
