bmake/bootstrap builds on Solaris 9, but it's job control is a bit
broken. after starting a pkg build, I can hit ^C all I like, and nothing
happens. strangely, even ^\ didn't kill it, I had to kill the
top-level bmake from another shell.
do you have the original diff of bootstrap/bmake vs. devel/bmake? I'm
guessing the diff will make it easy to identify and fix this.
