Thanks for looking into this so thoroughly
In the meanwhile also lua-mode showed this behaviour for me.

So there maybe a chance that, because quite some other modules are
loaded for byte-compiling the remaining ones, that mmm-mode caused all
the other hanging compilations? Let's check.
Hence I removed mmm-mode for now from my system. Next "dpkg
--configure --pending" broke at elpa-smex which you mentioned that you
didn't install it either, due to an RC bug I guess. So I removed that
one, too. Same for elpa-persp-projectile which failed, too.
With these three changes, all emacs configured fine and all these
erlpa packages compiled fine, too.
Hence reassigning all other bugs to the one against mmm-mode (and
reassigning that one from source package to binary package) and
setting according "affects". (Bcc'ed email@example.com)
Thanks again for your help tracking this down.
P.S.: I assume "installing all elpa packages" didn't inlcude mmm-mode
as it doesn't have the "elpa-" prefix. Hence it's clear why you didn't
run into this even with that test. :-)
