Hello List,

I should have done something stupid, but any command "make -jN",
(where N > 1) stalls the process after some time, even with
blank /etc/make.conf. I use i386-CURRENT as of yesterday.
Hereis a truss log from "make -C /usr/ports -j5 index"
(it is really small):

The directory /usr/ports is a link to /m/ports. Other than that
is pretty default.

What should be done, how to diagnose, etc... Thanks.
