Well, truss(1) -f generated a file which is about 550 MB, I'll upload
it somewhere if you want to see it...

It's been just habit and inertia, I have been using
ports-mgmt/bsdadminscripts for years and switched to
ports-mgmt/bsdadminscripts2 out of curiosity.

However, my initial post was a false alarm: I Ctrl-C-d pkg_libchk(1) as
it started to show 'ELF binary type "0" not known' messages. I now
played with pkg_libchk(1) more - it does show a lot of 'ELF binary type
"0" not known' messages, which it didn't do before, but it does finish

Thank you for your replies.
