I follow the documentation for the installation.  I type "./configure" and the script runs through a series of tests and then just hangs.  That is, the system freezes.

I tried gdb 5.1 and it failed.  I then tried gdb 4.18 and it also failed.  In 4.18 I went into each of the source directories bfd, readline, mmalloc, libiberty and gdb.  In each directory, I ran configure.  The problem occurred in the directory "bfd" but not in any of the others.

The last lines on the config.log file says:

configure : 1402: checking for BSD-compatible nm
configure : 1437: checking whether ln -s works
