Ports broken on Tier-2 architectures

Although most of the FreeBSD user base uses machines running either the amd64 or i386 codebase, we do have users of our other architectures.

This table attempts to list the more significant port failures on these architectures. If you run one of these, please consider pitching in to see if you can fix one of these problems.

Note that just because a cell is blank, doesn't necessarily mean the port has been attempted yet.

Hint: you can always use portsmon to see more information about the build status of one port for ia64/powerpc/sparc64. arm and mips are not yet tracked.

Contact MarkLinimon if you need help.

/!\ note: as of 20111218 the ia64 column is stale because no run has been made for some time.
/!\ TBB = "To Be Built". The arm run is quite preliminary as of 20120827.
