Webcore indicates you are building a webkit port - webkit builds are
long and use lots of ram - you could be hitting swap at times to slow
things down. I have a corei7 with 8GB and poudriere webkit-gtk2 builds
take about 1 - 1.5 hours. Once dependencies are in pgadmin should only
take about 5 mins.

pgadmin3 uses wx-gtk which brings in www/webkit-gtk2 through
x11-toolkits/wxgtk30 which has a WEBKIT option that is on by default.

The pgadmin binary links with libwebkitgtk which I think it uses for
it's built-in doc viewer, so it may fail without it.
