Description Sylvain Garrigues 2017-07-07 14:58:58 UTC
Looking at last modified date here:

I feel like our packages for armv6 no longer build.

If I look at a random port build log, seems like qemu is having trouble:

qemu: unsupported syscall: 551 (calling anyway)
Comment 1 Mark Linimon freebsd_committer freebsd_triage 2017-07-08 04:34:56 UTC
The problem is that perl no longer builds, thus, there is no reason to push package sets until this can be fixed.  IIUC the 551/552 problem is related but not the problem.
Comment 2 Sylvain Garrigues 2017-07-08 08:44:50 UTC
Perl does build on CURRENT:

The problem is related to the specific cross-building machine setup (qemu, poudriere, jail version): see the numerous qemu problems in each port log.

Might be related to the version of qemu-user installed on the building machine, and this bug https://bugs.freebsd.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=220478 which is now fixed.
Comment 3 Michal Meloun freebsd_committer 2017-07-09 06:31:36 UTC
The problem is that the qemu-user-static package that runs on CURRENT build machine (beefy8) has been built on FreeBSD 11 system. But, unfortunately, qemu cannot emulate a newer revision of the system which was built on.

In short, if you want qemu-user-static emulation for CURRENT then package must be built also on CURRENT.
Comment 4 Sylvain Garrigues 2017-07-10 08:53:50 UTC
Thanks for your answer. 

QEMU does build and run on CURRENT (I do have my own poudriere setup for CURRENT armv6 running sucessfully), so I guess it takes the beefy8 machine admin to upgrade packages. 

I can provide help and time.
