Problem compiling xorg-server{-snap} on recent -CURRENT

I am trying to upgrade my Xorg installation to 7.2.  I believe everything has 
upgraded successfully except for xorg-server.  While trying to compile either 
xorg-server port, the compilation process hangs in hw/xfree86/scanpci at 
xf86ScanPci.c.  The compiler just sits there, rapidly chewing up about 800MB 
of memory and doesn't proceed.  I am running -CURRENT from Saturday morning 
CDT (approx 10AM), so this is post symver and post gcc-4.2.  I would imagine 
this combination of software wasn't thoroughly tested.  My system is an 
Athlon64 3200+ (running i386).   Uname output is:

FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 7.0-CURRENT #3: Sat May 19 
12:16:39 CDT 2007     root@:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/vmbsd  i386

This is a very recently built system and quite clean in terms of what software 
is installed, prior to upgrading to 7.2 I only had about 350 packages 
installed, and the bulk of that was kde and support programs and libraries.

Has anyone managed to compile xorg-server on a very recent -CURRENT?
