I'm trying to do a long overdue upgrade from samba 3.6 to 4.x (I've tried all available 4.x releases from ports, 4.2, 4.3, and 4.4), and I've run into the very strange error message in the title of this post. Why is it so strange? Well, let me start at the beginning.
I'm still trying to, for...

I am upgrading 10.2 to 10.3. freebsd-update -r 10.3-RELEASE upgrade said that the following files have changed

Is there a way to cause portmaster -a to display it's logic for adding ports?

Presumably another port I'm...
Just a question, in case anyone has an answer: why does the Firefox port crash every time I update it?
Example from today's update, from /var/log/messages:
Feb 9 21:31:09 kg-core1 pkg: firefox-44.0,1 deinstalled
Feb 9 21:31:17 kg-core1 pkg-static: firefox-44.0.1,1 installed

Looked around a bit and realised it seems like FreeBSD is not having any Bitcoin wallet natively available? I would love to see Electrum ported or maybe some other Bitcoin wallet software which doesn't have to download the whole Bitcoin blockchain database...

(Some issues in common with https://forums.freebsd.org/threads/pkg-broken-after-ugrading-freebsd-from-10-1-to-10-2.52817/, notably the lack of libucl.so.1)
Before upgrading from 10.1-STABLE to 10.2-RELEASE, pkg was working nicely. After upgrading, libucl.so.1 is missing. This seems very weird...
I have a FreeBSD installation that had an upgrade failure between 8.? and 9.4 (IIRC). In the interest of getting 10.2 working properly on the machine, I downloaded the DVD image and burned a disc. Now I'm trying to figure out how to do the upgrade, and all I can find are instructions pointing...
