I'm not sure. The build process worked on the mentioned file for a few
hours, more swapping than compiling, before it failed. Without the O2
option it was a matter of about ten seconds. Maybe there's something
wrong with my system. I think, I'll try it on another machine first, to
see, if it behaves similar.

This is a NetBSD 5.1 system with pkgsrc-2011Q2, by the way.
