In all cases, the problem is traced back to a Makefile, where
something calls $(shell git ... ) to get a git version.

I was able to find out because one shell had executed a script called
scripts/setlocalversion that looked kind of suspicious in terms of
error propagation. In this script, if I manually echoed "1.6.0" and
then exited, do_install would not hang.

Some early discussion suggests that it might be avoidable with 'set -o
pipefail' in the shell, but I haven't investigated further.
I don't have anything super helpful to add, but when that git command
is hung, are you seeing any stalled network connections or processes
in D state ?

It wasn't clear from your first message. Are all native processes hanging
at do_install ? or is it a subset ?
