Sure - pygame no longer builds any kfreebsd-* binaries in unstable, but
there are still kfreebsd-* packages with dependencies on pygame.
The lack of kfreebsd-* binaries appears to have been a side-effect of
the "new" build-dependency on libportmidi-dev, which does not exist on
kfreebsd-*. The binaries were therefore removed in early December
In order to resolve the situation, either pygame needs to start building
on kfreebsd-* again or the reverse-dependencies need to be fixed to not
try and use pygame on kfreebsd-*.
