Fantastic, thank you.  Here's the bunny:

0 S root     13449 13448  0  80   0 -   724 wait   11:08 pts/3
00:00:00 sh install/doinst.sh -install
4 S root     14387 13449  0  80   0 -  3313 n_tty_ 11:08 pts/3
00:00:00 perl /usr/bin/updmap --nohash --syncwithtrees

So it's the second of the three commands in doinst.sh that is hanging.
 It has used almost no cpu time in 11 mins and it is waiting on
n_tty_read or n_tty_write.  All output is going to /dev/null, so
either your /dev/null is broken (ok, that's unlikely, but don't laugh,
I have seen people who have managed to delete the device node and
create a *huge* file there...) or it is stuck waiting for input that
never comes.

This is what updmap does:

/usr/bin/updmap should be a symlink to
/usr/share/texmf-dist/scripts/texlive/updmap.pl which should look like
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 76838 Apr 29  2013

Maybe you could try running it manually to see what happens.  This is
what I get, and it completes almost instantly:
multiverse# perl /usr/bin/updmap --nohash --syncwithtrees
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg files (in precedence order):
updmap is using the following updmap.cfg file for writing changes:

I hope you think this counts as progress...
