Yeah, I wouldn't expect that the SVC type had any influence on this.

Thanks for the suggestion, I might do that.

(Are you running 10.12 on a 32bit host? Is that even possible?)

That should just mean more ports will be indexed, no?

A related question: what happens if you run portindex on a fresh clone on one host, and then rsync the whole tree to another host with a different OS version? I just did that transfer; using rsync with compression (-z) it took much less time (48s ...) than even simply checking out the tree from git on the other host. Just running portindex on the transferred tree without -f didn't do anything so apparently it doesn't check for OS version or platform mismatches?
