unpacked & cd to /GS/FLP/pool/common-apps/Python-3.9.6/
./configure --help  (appears to hang but ps gives truth)

see attached file of ps output

Python 3.9.6 is no longer supported, 3.9.12 is the most recent 3.9.x release. Do you get the same results with 3.9.12? But, for what it's worth, ./configure --help of that 3.9.6 tarball works just fine on other current Linux systems I have available.

Bug closed because I get the same loop with python-3.10.4
