running 1.5.2/i386, pkgsrc tree fetched an hour ago.

'make fetch-list' in chat/xchat hangs. I stopped it after 30 minutes.

'make -dm fetch-list' tells me:

'make -dc fetch-list' prints some debugging lines (about 120) and then goes
to sleep.

'top' shows a steady stream of coming and going processes (make, sh, tr,
sort, ...). This looks very much like an endless loop.
