I'm seeing exactly the same issue as described here on Stackoverflow. I'm trying to build Cairo and Pixman as described in issue #20. Pixman previously built correctly for me but now hangs. I can log on to the dyno and build it manually using /bin/make but I'm not sure what else to test.

I've been working on a build system called anvil and I think it may be better suited for these types of builds.

Here's a sample build of memcached using anvil:

$ heroku build -b

Note that you give it a source tarball and a shell script to run. Anything that you leave in the /app directory will be scooped up into the "slug"

Give this a shot and let me know if it works for you. Feel free to grab me as ddollar on Freenode if you want something a bit more interactive.
