Yes, that was it, thanks!  I switched from Gnome to the default X
session and the system built perfectly.  Oddly, now that I'm running
the newly-built system I don't see the error even under Gnome.

The thing that was hanging was __sigaction_sigtramp generated by the
test in 'configure' for integer-divide-by-zero.  Any idea why I saw
that error yesterday and not today?  (Black Magic...)
