The system (running -current) was last compiled in mid-July,
so I decided to update world and kernel. To my surprise, it got
stuck in a similar way. Eventually I enabled an absurd excess of
swap, 3.5 Gb on each of da0s2b and mmcsd0s2b, and buildworld
seems to be making good progress. 

I'll post a note if anything interesting happens. 

Thanks for writing!
