Looks like a bug in either Darwin's linker (hangs) or in its
implementation of execwait. bjam is just waiting for the linker process
to complete.

My suggestion, to find out which: run bjam again with -n -a (build
nothing) or -d+2 (rebuild what's out of date) and look at the linker
command that bjam is issuing. Then try it yourself from a shell
prompt. If it hangs, you know it's the linker. If not, it's either a
bug in execwait or a bug in the way bjam is using it.
