No disagreement here on your reasoning on the futility of marking
every failing package BROKEN. But I do think we agree that a package
hanging the bulk build should be addressed in some way and also
that listing them in a Joyent configuration file isn't quite general

I'd be happy to mark those package NOT_FOR_BULK_PLATFORM when I
encounter them, but doesn't that hide them from the bulk reports
as well, masking the issue even more than BROKEN would?

By the way, ja-groff was the only one causing a hang for me. But
maybe other such packages failed indirectly.
