I am upgrading all of my ports on a slightly slower machine, and ruby+pthreads packge is taking what seems to be an unreasonably long time to compile. Is it possible that it is stuck in a loop? It has been sitting on "Generating RI" for several hours. It doesn't seem to take that long to build the whole base system.

For some reason, generating the Ruby docs requires a lot of RAM, and will do poorly (ie, swap a lot) if the machine it is running on doesn't have ~ 512MB or more RAM [1]. I believe you can do a "make config" in the ruby ports dir and disable the creation of the Ruby docs which ought to help....
