Attempting to run make on any port produces:

How is this possibly correct when 11.1 is still listed as a production
release!?!?!?!?

https://www.freebsd.org/security/ the EOL date is set to September 30,
2018.
As of 30 seconds ago the web site's front page lists 11.1 as being
"production" which is clearly not correct given the EOL status

https://www.freebsd.org/security/index.html#sup says otherwise.
Note the "September 30, 2018" below for 11.1 (copied from that
page's content). (I'm unsure if alignment will be preserved.)

Branch Release Type Release Date Expected EoL
stable/10 n/a n/a n/a October 31, 2018
releng/10.4 10.4-RELEASE Normal October 3, 2017 October 31, 2018
stable/11 n/a n/a n/a September 30, 2021
releng/11.1 11.1-RELEASE n/a July 26, 2017 September 30, 2018
releng/11.2 11.2-RELEASE n/a June 28, 2018 11.3-RELEASE + 3 months

Near the time of such transitions, some references may not have
been updated yet.

Because FreeBSD 11.1 went EoL yesterday. You need to upgrade to 11.2.
Here's the announcement.
https://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-announce/2018-September/001842.html

You're right, however, that the website isn't up-to-date. It was updated
in one place but not another. I'll bug somebody to fix it.
https://www.freebsd.org/releases/ (incorrect)
https://www.freebsd.org/security/security.html#sup (correct)
