Sorry to come in late to the party, and I'm not sure if my
observations are related or helpful, but I just this afternoon I did
an svn co trunk onto an aged Ubuntu box and it took an extraordinarily
long time to build.  It would hang for many minutes after each of the
lines like the last one below (or before those like the first line).
It finally built successfully (I think).
