Once security/rkhunter reaches the 'Performing malware checks', there
appears to be no I/O -- this check used to take less than 2 minutes on
7-STABLE (and previous). I was running the check as I was writing
this email -- here's what top(1) shows:
last pid: 52370; load averages: 0.98, 0.77, 0.48 up 0+02:54:16 16:13:35
74 processes: 2 running, 72 sleeping
CPU: 8.3% user, 0.0% nice, 45.8% system, 0.0% interrupt, 45.8% idle
Mem: 224M Active, 203M Inact, 124M Wired, 1484K Cache, 112M Buf, 1432M Free

Any thoughts on how I should proceed troubleshooting this?
The basics are covered, of course, such as an up-to-date tree, and
fresh rebuilds on the port(s) in question.
Thanks for any tips.
