That just means they are *supported* on any drawn version. Each version still have its own build.

b.t.w. When upgrading to a new major OS version, you anyway should follow the migration instructions, which involves manually removing all ports anyway.


See point 3c.

I noticed that ports that use ‘platform { darwin any }’ get reinstalled during this process, and ‘port outdated’ shows ‘(platform darwin 22 ≠ 23)’. Does MacPorts really need to reinstall these ports if they’re marked as being suitable for any Darwin version?
