Activate never completes

The last few installs that I have attempted have hung during the activate
phase ... I have terminated the processes and tried an explicit activate
command, but that hangs, too. Now I have a number of intalled-but-inactive
ports hanging around. For instance:

mikes-brcm-mbp:~ mikejt$ port installed
The following ports are currently installed:
  aquaterm @1.0.1_0+darwin_8
  expat @2.0.0_1
  expat @2.0.1_0 (active)
  fontconfig @2.4.2_0+macosx
  freetype @2.3.5_0
  gawk @3.1.5_2 (active)
  gettext @0.14.6_0
  gettext @0.16.1_0 (active)
  libiconv @1.10_1+darwin_8
  libiconv @1.11_4+darwin_8 (active)
  libpcap @0.9.5_1 (active)
  pkgconfig @0.22_0+universal (active)
  XFree86 @4.7.0_0+macosx (active)
  zlib @1.2.3_1 (active)
mikes-brcm-mbp:~ mikejt$ sudo port activate freetype
--->  Activating freetype

Then nothing ... just dead air .. same thing if I try to activate aquaterm
