lang/guile from pkgsrc hangs in select
in recent HEAD (as of Sun Aug 8) lang/guile hangs in select.

Compiling it from source fails with a similar problem (lt-guile hangs
in select during the build process).

from another thread by sending 1 byte.
But I tried that in a simple test program and it works ok - must be
