In a worst case normal packages building may also hangs by going to
unfinite loops, or waiting for something... Even fetching packages
often hangs up (on Linux).
building devel/ldapsdk hangs on Linux
building math/lapack hangs on Linux (unfinite loop)
There are others
To prevent hangs during fetching I use
FETCH_OUTPUT_ARGS= -O -nc
The same timeout may be set for tnftp client and probably some defaults
should be set by bootstrap.
