This is most likely the feared FUTEX issue again. Please see
http://www.denx.de/wiki/DULG/ELDKInstallationHangs for details.
The only workaround we can recommend so far is to update your host
system and install more recent versions of the Linux kernel and/or
the glibc C library (assuming such are available for your distro; if
not, falling back to a previous version may help, too).
This is only needed for the installer, the problem does not happen
with the regular use of the ELDK.

If you think the problem is bad now, just wait until we've solved it.
