I'm having much worse problems than that with some packages. I think
it's caused by the March 18 BUILDLINK_PACKAGES fix to all of the
buildlink3.mk files, but now it takes me 27 seconds just to get an
error message back from typing "make asdfasdfasd" in graphics/gimp
(because it's spending all of that time reading and re-reading and
re-re-reading dependant buildlink files).
