Here is how anybody with a new intel iMac can help:

Before you install the TeX i-Package on your new MacBook Pro, please 
set Log Level to 6 and add II2GWOVERRIDE with value YES to the 
i-Installer environment (both in i-Installer preferences). When it 
hangs please run a "ps laxww" in Terminal. Then after you have aborted, 
create a report. Send me the output.

After you are done, remove II2GWOVERRIDE from your i-Installer
