I've noticed the same thing. My machine is only a Celeron 533, and I gave up
after about two hours.
The amount of data -isnt- that huge... thats what I didnt understand,
because the amount of data to process is roughly the same as the amount in
FreeBSD's ports collection, and when I used to run FreeBSD, make search
would do its thing right away.

what gives? is this some flaw in pkgsrc?
^ thats not to you personally, just wondering :)
