The first thing to do is to verify that "./configure; make; make check"
or "make test" in the gc directory works correctly.

If that doesn't report any errors, we'd really need a stack trace of the hung
process obtained, e.g. by running it in a debugger for a while, and then
interrupting it.  Or it might be easier to get it to generate a core dump
and then get a debugger to extract a stack trace from that.
