When using the new pselect based job server logic, I regularly see hanging
pkgsrc bulk builds on NetBSD 7.0, both i386 and amd64. Most common victims are
huge packages like libreoffice. The symptoms are gmake processes with exactly
one zombie child per concurrent job. Since disable pselect by overriding the
configure test, the problem has disappeared.
