I've see the conftest scripts getting stuck before.  This time, it
seemed to be mv operations.

10Oct12   0:01.05 /bin/mv -f
10Oct12   0:00.59 /bin/mv -f
10Oct12   0:00.71 /bin/mv -f
Mon07AM   0:00.60 /bin/mv -f
Mon07AM   0:00.34 /bin/mv -f

15Oct12   0:09.16 /bin/mv -f

Francois Tigeot mentioned something similar on IRC, that he had a lot
of stuck mv processes.  Maybe having -j set is causing problems?
These all appear to come in pairs, and I think the third qt4-libs
operation comes from having retried that build.
