I don't know if this is relevant and related or not, but I think it
On the VAX, this has worked fine in the past. On the Alpha this works
fine with 5.0 as well.
However, on the VAX, I can observe a few very peculiar things. systat
normally do a screen update every five seconds. On the VAX, when
build.sh is running, I have observed as much as a minute and a half
between screen updates. It seems related to how busy the machine is
with the current command. When make comes to libc, it takes about a
minute and a half to suck in and process all the dependencies, and
nothing happens in systat during this.
Another thing is that the interrupt counters are weird. I can run a
ping towards the VAX during this, and response times are fine the
whole time. However, the interrupt counters in systat don't report any
interrupts. They probably do show up later, but there is some kind of
delay going on here. I have no idea exactly how this all works out,
but I find it strange.
