Could folks please add these sorts of additional details to this PR:

Looking through those PRs, it appears that very little is done to keep this up to date. Is there a point to even write PRs?

Well... a standard response to issues that get reported or complained about is "Did you file a PR?"... So if that is done, it's one less
excuse for developers not knowing about the issue ;)

True enough. :-)

#18483, for instance. That error looked so familiar, and sure enough, it has been fixed as far as I can tell. And if I remember right, it's been quite a while since it was fixed.

If you can verify it's fixed, I'll close the PR....

I just tried it on my 4000/90 as by the PR, and it worked. Ie. no crash as described on the PR, but instead got the expected result.

As for 5.0, it also seems to go catatonic on me regularly when running on my 4000/90. Anyone else noticed something like this?

All I've attempted to do with netbsd-5 on my 4000/60 so far is to build.sh a release... that died some 26 hours later, and I havn't played with the box much since...

Hmm. If you try to do something while it's building, you should see what I'm seeing, if the problem isn't something local to me.

I assume that the crash was the usual groff crashes just mentioned, by the way.

I'm pretty sure I've talked about those on this mailing list in the past, so if someone wants to know how old this problem is, I think a search through the archives should give a clue.

And usual, a "workaround" is just to restart the build, with -u. But you'll need to do it about six times before you're past the problematic spot.

I'm just doing a native build, and the machine totally goes silent on me for a while, and then wakes up again, with no sign or clue on why it was quiet.

Hmm.. never noticed that sort of behaviour before, but I just started a build and only checked in on it once or twice...

I tend to do more things meanwhile, such as running top, system, and occasionally try other things in parallel.
