I've noticed it too.  I've found that the install dependencies separately 
usually helps, although it rather difficult to tell what needs to be installed
since pkg_add doesn't say anything when it installs dependencies.
I was hoping to take a look at where pkg_add puts the files to figure out if it
stops at the same place every time, but from just a cursory investigation I
couldn't tell where it puts them.  In every case that I've run into, it seems
to happen after approximately the same amount of time, but of course that's a
rather rough measure.
