This thing seems to happen more often nowadays in FreeBSD. I hate it. I
have a reasonable fast Athlon-3400, but still. I do not think a machine is
supposed to spent so much time on building. I know you don't have to
'touch' the ports and could run a plain release. But who does this?

Anyway, it's annoying to me. But that's of course a personal view ;-)
