Several people have reported this sort of thing in the past few days.
The most detailed report suggested that the newly-built bmake program
was stuck in an infinite loop while performing the "recursive" test
inside the "unit-tests/dotwait" makefile.

I think we need somebody with the right environment to run that test
under a debugger to figure out what's going wrong.  It could be a bug in
bmake itself, a bug in a library, accidental linkage against the wrong
library, a compiler bug, or something else.
