For giggles, I temporarily swapped the one already in /opt/local/bin  with the somewhat older binary supplied by Apple, and it did the same...leading me to suppose that although they perhaps shouldn't behave that way, it's something in the input they're fed that has them running indefinitely (and using all the CPU they can get while they're doing it, too).

Yes, that's true. But I wouldn't expect using that variant to cause this problem. 

Are you able to install the port without that variant if you build from source (i.e. use the "-s" flag), or do you get the same hang then?
