I've had issues building devel/p5-POE for a while. If I build it via poudriere I don't get any output to the terminal I run poudriere from, but if I look in the log I see:
Some of POE's tests require a functional network.
You can skip these tests if you'd like.
Would you like to skip the network tests?
This prompt is apparently skipped automatically if there is no active terminal, but running poudriere bulk from a terminal (or even portmaster with the "hide build" option enabled) won't show the prompt and the build will pause until you look in the logfile to figure out what's going on
It would be most helpful if the port could detect that the user isn't going to see the prompt and skip the tests

Well, if you're not at the keyboard looking, you should pass BATCH=yes to the make command line, which portmaster should do, I think, in that case, it never asks for anything, but I'll patch it to never ask anything.
