I had the same problem.  Doing a tar jtvf on the bzip2ed tar file 
revealed that the download had an integrity problem:

-rw-r--r-- root/root     18948 1997-12-26 17:00:00 

bzip2: Data integrity error when decompressing.
         Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.
You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover
data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

-rw-r--r-- root/root     18386 1995-10-18 18:00:00 
tar: Unexpected EOF in archive
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

While the installation seems to be hang, it's actually working.  A peek 
into the directory indicates that the file being installed is growing
