Yes.  It should take two or three minutes to install on relatively
modest hardware.

If the root fs is approaching fullness, ext4 performance can
deteriorate quite dramatically -- and if installing on the same host
it's just been built on, there could well already be a 1.3 Gb
package-texlive tree and a 0.7 Gb texlive-20130530-source tree under
/tmp/SBo that might be on the root fs, and the final built package
might also be in /tmp, so that's a peak demand of > 4 Gb.  If that's
not applicable to Rich's problem, it needs watching with top, ps,
iostat etc. to see what is happening.
