We haven't had a feedback about ClamAV yet, so we didn't know about that.
We're now building the ports with the default options from FreeBSD more or less and that would mean some of them regarding curl leads to ClamAV being broken
Would you mind opening a ticket about that issue to help us track it ?
Either on (you will need to ask for an account first, IRC is a good place to do so), or on if you already have a Github account.

Regarding ClamAV, we follow the FreeBSD ports, and we're currently on 2022Q4 branch, and that's the version available in that one.
Version 1.0.0 should land when we start using FreeBSD 2023Q1 branch, the version has been updated with

I did a quick test and was able to build curl with the CARES option enabled by just modifying the Makefile in the dports tree, and then ClamAV package rebuilt fine after that, I can send you some pre-built packages if you are interested to try, as I only built it, but didn't try running ClamAV.
