Can you post the relevant part of the "ps auxf" command executed when
the Buildroot build hangs ? I.e, the part of the process tree that
starts at the main Buildroot make command. This will allow us to see on
which process/step the build process is hanging.

I guess Redhat 6 is now publicly available, so we cannot reproduce the
problem. Do you reproduce the problem with publicly available operating
systems, such as CentOS, so that we can reproduce ?
