when re-building packages, the build process sometimes just … stops. There is no error or
anything, there's just nothing happening any more.
Examples of this are devel/scmgit-docs and x11/gtk2. The exact spot when this happens varies,
but I noticed that it's always (as far as I can tell) a bash process that stalls.
scmgit-docs repeatedly calls xmlto, which is a bash script. gtk2 uses bash for the configure
scripts (which more often than not stall at writing config.status or similar).
I have tried recompiling bash and installing the binary bash via pkg_radd; none helped.
I'm using a very recent (post-vm_object work) kernel, uname -a is:

On my i386 UP laptop it seems to work fine (scmgit-docs build went through on first try).

I suggest you to move the source tree to at least:

:status: chatting -> resolved
There are probably more of these sorts of issues with the recent VM work,
and I expect more to crop up as we shift from the use of the global vmobj
and vm tokens to fine-grained tokens. But they are getting resolved
in fairly short order.
