submit a pr. What I've done when I notice something getting stuck in
a bulk build is I kill off the particular command which is stuck (often
times c++). This usually marks that package as broken and continues.
You can also always do
to pick up a bulk build from where it left off. It keeps a state in
a couple of files to help with this. Definitely needed when my pmax
was taking 2 months....
You can also "pre-break" certain packages that you know will cause
a bulk build to hang. grep for pre-build.local in pkgsrc/Packages.txt

Yes. When its done can you put the output logs up for http or ftp
