Installing Parallel Virtual File System on Debian Lenny, an strange problem

Hi all,

on my system I have uname -r


cat /etc/issue

Debian GNU/Linux lenny/sid \n \l

So, I downloaded from parallel virtual system and I want to install it on my machine. In pdf I found there are instructions how to do that and after starting ./configure I got this...some last line...

PVFS2 configured to use epoll : yes

PVFS2 configured for using trusted connections : no
PVFS2 configured for a thread-safe client library : yes
PVFS2 will use workaround for redhat 2.4 kernels : no
PVFS2 will use workaround for buggy NPTL : no
PVFS2 server will be built : yes

PVFS2 version string: 2.7.0

after that I run

make and nothing happened just hung.

After running strace make I got this output ( the place where it hung )

I had not before situations like this, so if someone know what can cause problem like this, please write.
Any suggestion is welcome

Thanks in advance,
