It would be better, yes.  But it would also require more time and
effort than I had available, and ivolves some of the "why does
the kernel in general grow", which is a general problem I'm not
up for solving singlehandedly.

Intentionally leaving a port non-buildable will probably cause
other subsequent build failures to go undetected in the mean time
(OK, granted, this is near the end of the build, but still...),
so I think that is also not a good strategy.
