I can replicate this behavior, the same thing is happening here.
Something's not quite correct with the configure script. gc.h sits at
/usr/local/include and /usr/local/include/gc (I don't know why I do
have two copies). The configure script looks for Boehm GC at
/usr/include. As you did, I have installed Boehm at /usr and still is 
stalling at the install script
