Thank you.  #62401 explains everything I thought was wrong.  I did not know
that the ports website was not updating, or that there was another way to
look for successful builds.

While the ports website is not updating, is there an easy way for me to
access build logs for new builds that fail for specific ports?  It's not
critical but would help me stay on track.
