[Sks-devel] Anyone successfully running SKS on FreeBSD 11.1 ?

I updated my system from FreeBSD 10.3 to 11.1, which for the most part
has gone far better than expected.  The one dark spot is SKS.

The daemon keeps running away chewing CPU and not responding; ktrace
shows that it's doing nothing but _umtx_op() calls, which is kernel
support for userland threads.

OCaml 4.05.0 and my own patched code, so it's possible that I broke
something at some point in my patches.  Berkeley DB 5.3.  Code unmodified
since the version which was running fine on FreeBSD 10.3, only
recompiled since then.

I did a fresh keydump download and install; it took around 8 hours for a
fastbuild, which is significantly longer than I expected.  (Dell
Poweredge hardware, Intel etc etc).

If there's anyone out there on FreeBSD, can you share tips please?
Anything in particular you did to build with an OCaml other than the one
in Ports, which has the "generate code susceptible to integer overflow
attack" vulnerability?  My knowledge of the OCaml ecosystem is poor, I
poked and prodded until I got ocamlbrew appearing to give me working
binaries and I followed the exact same steps when I rebuilt.
