On some occasions, pkg_add will hang indefinitely. Inspection with gdb shows 
that it hangs in mpool_get, possibly in the loop inside mpool_look, although I 
couldn't get that information.
It seems to happen at the same file every time in a particular package file, 
although there is no pattern to it.

db4 and perl are the only packages so far that have given me problems.
In order to attempt to find more information about the problem, I recompiled 
pkg_install and libnbcompat with -O0 and -g3, the problem seems to have 
disappeared after that. This is merely a workaround although it may point to 
what the problem actually is.
