[tex-live] Difficulty compiling

I am attempting to compile the latest sources, but every time it stalls 
at the same place. 
Platform: FreeBSD 8.0
I am running the Build script without options.  Using the --debug switch 
stalls at the same place. 
Below are the last few lines of output:

** Configuration summary for TeX Live 2009-10-10:

   compiling for i386-unknown-freebsd8.0
   prefix:                    /usr/home/scott/texlivebuild/source/inst

   enable_cxx_runtime_hack:   yes

** Next run `make' to configure and build each library and program.

-e 's%\$VARTEXFONTS%/nonesuch/vartexfonts%g'  | sed -e 's%;%:%g'  

I'm obviously missing something, but the output doesn't tell me anything 

Can someone point me in the right direction to make progress?
