when doing a fresh build of pkgsrc on a 1.5 alpha, I noticed this:

alpha> => Checksum OK for teTeX/teTeX-texmf-1.0.2.tar.gz.
alpha> ===> Extracting for teTeX-share-1.0.2
alpha> ===> Installing for teTeX-share-1.0.2
alpha> Extracting teTeX-texmf-1.0.2.tar.gz to /usr/pkg/share/texmf
alpha>   ** Get yourself a shower and a big mug of coffee,
alpha>   ** this will take _very_ long!
alpha> install -d -o root -g wheel -m 555 /usr/pkg/share/texmf

alpha> /usr/bin/tar -plzx  -C /usr/pkg/share/texmf  -X
/usr/pkgsrc/print/teTeX-share/files/exclude  -f 
alpha> xargs: /bin/ls: Argument list too long

anyone know about this error?  "xargs: /bin/ls: Argument list too long"
and what we may be losing becasue of it?
