I'm trying to install texlive-fonts-extra, which has 61748 files in its destroot/ folder. port -d install texlive-fonts-extra appears hang - no messages for several minutes and the CPU usage keeps high at around ~98%.

I found that the installation process is running the loop at If the loop is inevitable, how about adding some messages saying that the port process is busy doing something? It will improve the user experience greatly.

/cc the author of the aforementioned loop.
