People do updates. Usually those updates built for them. Time passes. People test some things. Some things get fixed. We cut a branch. Sometimes things are broken. We have no mechanism or policy to delete source packages from a branch if they don't build. Longer term, if they never build and are pointless, someone will propse deletion, and then sometimes they are fixed, sometimes they are deleted, sometimes they stay. There's no magic beyond what you see on the lists. Of course, everybody tries to have everything work, but there are lots of moving pieces. Reports like yours are helpful, and building and testing pkgsrc HEAD is useful.
