Darwin darwin.local 8.0.1 Darwin Kernel Version 8.0.1: Fri Apr 29 12:18:40 PDT 2005; root:xnu-792.obj/RELEASE_I386 x86 i386

bootstrap finished successfully. However attempting to build most other packages results in /usr/bin/curl hanging and freezing at 100% and performing no other operations. 

Download Darwin 8 x86 iso from 

Install to a QEMU VM per these instructions

(but use '-enable-kvm' to make it faster if your machine does KVM)

Login as root and get basic pkgsrc tarball

$ curl -O

Untar/gz and bootstarp pkgsrc per this

$ cd bootstrap ; ./bootstrap

Try to build something simple, like wget

$ cd net/wget ; bmake

It will freeze at the 100% download mark fetching dependency tarballs. 

$ ps auxwww | grep curl

in another login shows the following is the command that is hanging (for example when running bmake under pkg net/wget)

/usr/bin/curl --fail --insecure --location --remote-time -o wget-1.18.tar.xz -O


mv /usr/bin/curl /usr/bin/oldcurl

this will cause pkgconfig to use an alternative download method which does not hang
