To see if it's the problem you'll need to enter ddb and see what the

OK, do I need to add kernel debugging, etc? I've done this in the past
but it's been a while.

ddb should be enough. after entering ddb, ps to see what thread
are waiting on what; you can get stack trace for each blocked threads
with tr/a or tr/t (warning: ps show PID and LID in decimal but tr/t
takes input in hex by default. tr/t 0t1234 will take input as decimal)

Arrgh. My stupid motherboard seems to have intermittent issues with the
USB keyboard and I can't get it into DDB. And I can't complete a build
without nfs locking up.

Is there a workaround? I'll try disabling nfsd...

If it's the same issue as mine, setting nfsd_use_loan to 0 should work
around it.
