-# For individuals wanting to build from source with GCC from ports, first build
-# or install an appropriate flavor of devel/freebsd-gcc9. The packages produced
-# by this port are named "${TARGET_ARCH}-gcc9" -- note that not all
-# architectures supported by FreeBSD have an external gcc toolchain available.
-#
-# Once the appropriate freebsd-gcc package is installed, simply pass
-# CROSS_TOOLCHAIN=${TARGET_ARCH}-gcc9 while building with the above steps,
-# e.g., `make buildworld CROSS_TOOLCHAIN=amd64-gcc9`.
+# For individuals wanting to build from source with GCC from ports, first
