kde4 and gnome3 meta-packages has disappeared, can't install them via
pkg ins kde4
pkg ins gnome3
when compiling from meta-port kde4, but when single compiled - it succeeds.
It's not the only one case, I will write here for more this time.
I feel like smth is wrong with variables setting/clearing or/and compiler.
Why don't you test such ports like gnome3 and kde4 each time, for e.g., compiler version changes? It would be nice to have such right-thru compiling. I suppose you have got enough resources to right-thru compile the whole ports directory just testing for errors, using chroot for e.g.
You may want to take a look at http://pkg.freebsd.org/freebsd:10:x86:64/latest/All/ -- that is the listing of all the latest packages that have been built. There is a gnome3 package there, and for me -- x86_64, 10.3-RELEASE -- "pkg ins gnome3" offers to download that package, plus about 2GB of dependencies. Perhaps you have a different architecture, release, or are using an unexpected mirror?
The KDE package is called "kde", not "kde4", even though the port directory is "x11/kde4". That is a historical weirdness. You will find that "pkg ins kde" installs the metaport for KDE4.
The reason the packages are named differently is because of the PORTNAME= line in their respective ports-Makefiles. x11/gnome3/Makefile calls itself gnome3, while x11/kde4/Makefile calls itself kde.

No, there's nothing for me, I have FreeBSD-11 x64. But few months ago there were such meta-packages, it seems the deleted old and failed to compile new.
