Hi gang, Just a question: It seems while building a port, the ports system somehow spawns hundreds and hundreds of copies of make (even so much that they start hitting system limits). What's causing it, and how do I make it stop doing that.
Number of procs in top(1) shoot up into the ranges of 600+ procs (and usually defunct). Load average sometimes jumps up into the 100+ (I kid you not). I doubt that that is desired operation. I only started seeing this behavior when I switched over to CURRENT, but this mail is cc'd to ports@ too, just in case. It makes using portupgrade(1) as tense as a good thriller flick (will my system survive? The suspense!) It usually happens at the beginning and at the bit where the installation of a port is 'registered' So, what do I do? Is anyone else seeing this too?
