I didn't notice long periods with no output but I do see port -v
returning with no output under certain circumstances. Like port -v
And when I was building a Portfile and had a checksum or web path
issue, don't remember, seems it didn't give much output there either.
But no long hangs. Sounds like a network or distribution file issue to
But I know close to nothing about how port works inside.
