Patch to make it build again
At the moment, net/liferea hangs during the build because WebKit tries to connect to an X server/Wayland/Broadway. During the build, there is no graphical environment. Instead of failing, WebKit just waits. Setting the environment variable WEBKIT_DISABLE_COMPOSITING_MODE=1 makes WebKit initialize without any graphics environment. The port build successfully with this setting.
Quick fix found here: https://github.com/lwindolf/liferea/issues/767
Seems like a potentially better solution than bug #243677 ;-)

net/liferea: unbreak build
liferea tries to initialize it's graphics backend even when being run
for gobject introspection only - and that causes webkit to crash or
hang when there is no X server or similar available (e.g. during package
build in poudriere). This environment variable makes webkit survive
the package build.

If only I had known that there was such an simple solution...
committed as ports r524609 - thank you very much.
Do you plan to MFH to 2020Q1?
