Nope. I'd say that something has quite clearly gone wrong there. You can kill the compilation using 'Ctrl-C' (maybe required several times) -- that's the usual was to kill any misbehaving process under Unix. Before re-trying the compilation, cvsup(1) the latest version of the ports to pick up any fixes that may have gone into the tree in the mean time.
