On the plus side, the version of DragonFly on pkgbox is new enough to (I
think) avoid the hal issues, but old enough to avoid the reentrancy
issues.  It's more than 3/4 of the way through a bulk build, so we
have a newer batch of packages to use.  Maybe not exactly pkgsrc-2008q4,
but there's motion forward.
I hope that the package build on pkgbox is just to catch problems, not to
build actual packages.  It always takes days to sync.
It's to build packages.  You know this - you're mirroring it.

We do need to figure out a solution that fixes the delay in getting
material out.  More bandwidth to, or moving pkgbox to
someplace with a faster connection, or someone building (or letting me
build) on their CPU-and-bandwidth-rich system would be options.
I thought you were building on matthias' box?
