The qutes are needed.  This is not a solution.  Pam and modutils are
vital parts of the NFS system...

You wait until the process grinds to a halt, then find its pid with ps
(use ps -axf which gives you a nice hierarchy, look for the install
process) and then attach to it with "strace -p".  There's no need to
anticipate any PIDs.
