So...my synth capabilities were de facto lost when the ports tree moved to git
since my typical application update procedure was

svn update
synth status
synth prepare-system
pkg upgrade -r Synth

I have subsequently done the conservative OS upgrade from 11.4 to 12.3
but the DVD was geared to imposing a fresh install,so I am left porting
things over from a backup and haven't gotten everything running.

Now that I'm on an OS version that presumes the git ports tree,
what is the way to download an update from git to /usr/ports?

synth is not building because the desired snapshot of ncurses
can not be found (and my backup somehow lacks /usr/ports/distfiles).
Trying a make install of ncurses likewise can't find that snapshot.
What's to be done?

pkg update appears to finally be working but it complains about
the emptiness of the "up to date" Synth repository.
ncurses has no update from that snapshot,apparently.

My startx file complains that DRM has to be over version 3
to work with xorg and doesn't complete.

I was able to move some more files/directories from backups and got
synth to run on the ports tree from the 12.3 DVD but I can't use it to
update its repository further unless I can update ports.

I used pkg install to bring ncurses (I think NOT that snapshot)
and synth did build from ports.

Got startx to run but my browsers still fail to load XPCOM.

How do you use what's at the git repository to update what is
installed from the DVD??

For firefox-esr this now refines to

XPCOMGlueLoad error for file /usr/local/lib/firefox/libmozgtk.so:
/usr/local/lib/libGL-NVIDIA.so.1: Undefined symbol "nv020glcore"
Couldn't load XPCOM.

This is firefox-esr 91.13 installed by pkg after make install from
ports hung on some dependency issues.

I added some more ports and PRESTO!...it works.
But Seamonkey 2.53.7 (which I depend on to handle graphical
mail though my primary client is alpine) still "Couldn't load XPCOM".

Tackled this by renaming /usr/ports to ports12.3dvd to make room for clone.
