At this line it does this:
root at kg-vm# ps ax | grep p3
62893  p3  I+     0:00.03 make
62995  p3  I+     0:00.00 [sh]
62996  p3  I+     0:00.00 [sh]
62997  p3  I+     0:00.00 [sh]
62998  p3  I+     0:00.00 /bin/sh ./configure --help
62999  p3  I+     0:00.00 /usr/bin/grep -- --mandir

However, the configure script included with the port doesn't have a
'--help' option. It is interactive (it uses read).
Why the output doesn't show I don't know. Pressing ENTER a couple of
times doesn't work either.

Try this patch:
root at kg-vm# diff -u Makefile.orig Makefile

Feel free to send-pr this if you so wish.

FWIW, this port
- doesn't have a port maintainer
- hasn't been updated since 2005 (and had its last functional update in 2003)

If nobody wants to take maintainership of this port, I would suggest
you try to find another port or program which does the same thing and
is more up to date / better supported.

Or you could be the new maintainer of this port.
