These are the instructions for pkgbase? just relate it to 12.0 releng, instead of head.

cd /usr/src
make [make flags] buildworld
make [make flags] buildkernel
make packages


# FreeBSD base system repository
FreeBSD-base: {
  url: "file:///usr/obj/usr/src/repo/${ABI}/latest",
  mirror_type: "none",
  enabled: yes

pkg update -r FreeBSD-base
pkg install -g 'FreeBSD-*'

Then, I still need mergemaster, or etcupdate(8).

Then, I would use pkg for the base as for ports?

And there's more information for multiple kernel packages, and for upgrading.

This wouldn't save time, compared to what I did before, with the exception of removing trial and error. But at least, it would be able to put packages back in, if I was still learning what was essential for my system.

Also, I suspect that I can use src.conf the same way as before, to prevent having to build what I know I don't want, based on past trial and error.
