Yes, then you already have the macOS 11 SDK.

This "SDK" is the SDK MacPorts wants to use. It does not indicate the SDK that actually exists on your system. If the SDK indicated here does not exist, it will use whatever SDK does exist.

Since you already have the macOS 11 SDK, I agree that providing a port for the macOS 11 SDK would do nothing to help this situation.

It has been awhile since this thread has started and I forget the other details. If you are still having trouble building FileZilla, please file a bug report; I don't see any filed for FileZilla right now.
