NetBSD kochi-netbsd 4.99.3 NetBSD 4.99.3 (build) #4: Thu Oct 19 12:33:43 JST 2006  kochi@kochi-netbsd:/althome/kochi/build i386
This is running -current on VMWare with two processors. 
This smells like a libpthread problem but categorizing pkg at first anyway.

While building pkgsrc/lang/ruby18-base, compilation fails.

and if I type `make' again, the `miniruby' runs forever

Attaching the process by gdb -p succeeds, but its backtrace is not

Setting RUBY_USE_PTHREAD=no in /etc/mk.conf helped and the build

Building the same package on NetBSD 3.0 system also didn't show
the symptom.
In -current environment, cd /usr/pkgsrc/lang/ruby18-base and make build.
I'd like to conclude that libpthread is the culprit but
I have no idea how to investigate further as yet.
