Certainly you are welcome to try.

Stepping  back, I would comment that Apple has only released hardware
with the new CPU type a month or two ago, and therefore many projects
are going to take a while to address it, to the extent it needs
addressing.   I think it's perfectly ok that it takes a while, and that
pkgsrc is troubled on this brand-new platform until upstreams have
actual releases that are ok.
