That's good to hear, when it happens again, if you note the PID of
pkg_add and pass it to gdb with:
gdb --pid=$THATPID

Does the output from issuing the bt command to gdb indicate that it's
also hung on mpool_get() ?

Yes -- everything about it is the same except for the disassembly, which is understandable given the CPU difference. :)
