And, if you don't like go, or you don't like rust, then your issue is
not with pkgsrc, but with various upstreams that choose to use these

go at least has a bootstrap story from C, and seems to be somewhat
portable; I don't know if it it works more or less everywhere like
python.  And you can build go on a RPI3 with 1G of RAM with no special
trouble.  Overall, go isn't really the pain point in the modern world --
that title seems to belong to rust.

I concur that it sounds like Thomas has hardware issues.  (And, if the
system crashes while building pkgsrc, then that isn't a pkgsrc bug in
the first place.)
