netbsd-8 'pkg_info' segfaults during package builds?

On the machine I'm using to update during the (barely noticed) pkgsrc
freeze, I'm seeing segfaults from 'pkg_info' on nearly every package.
This is seen while running 'pkg_rolling-replace -u'.

A typical occurrence is like:

The build continues and completes, so the 'pkg_info' segfault is
non-fatal to the build, but perhaps the information it was gathering
is incomplete.

'gdb' says:

[ad nauseum]

So, it appears something is throwing it into an infinite loop and likely
terminates only when it has run out of RAM (5GB on this machine).

Only seen it on this machine so far:

NetBSD 8.0_BETA NetBSD 8.0_BETA (KEPLER) #15: Fri Dec 22 15:38:11 CST 2017 amd64

as it's the crash-test dummy for problem packages in the run-up to to

There's no room on the root/usr filesystem for debug sets so I'll have
to see about redirecting that with a symlink to see if I can get more
