When building Time::y2038 20100403 on Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard (a.k.a. darwin 10); the check_max program hangs. The build script detects this and times out after awhile, but the stuck check_max program stays running (forever?) in the background. In MacPorts, this causes a hang at the end of the build phase while MacPorts apparently waits for that process to exit. Here is the MacPorts project's ticket about this bug:Could you change your build system so that when it is detected that check_max has hung, it is then terminated? Thanks.
