Problem with makehistory and buffindexed

I have upgraded our news server, and changed the configuration to 
use buffindexed (thanks Katsuhiro).

However, when I try and rebuild the history with the command :

makehistory -b -f /tmp/history.n -O -I -T/tmp -l 300000

the makehistory command runs for a while and then just hangs - no updates
to the new history file, no new overview, etc. I have left the
program running for over 24 hours and still nothing.

Help please. Thanks.
