I assume a broken compiler or Xlib here. The debugging process
looks as follows:

1. Debug dwm, because it's simplier.
2. Recompile dwm with -O0 -g CFLAGS
3. Run dwm
4. Make it mute
5. Attach the pid to a gdb instance
6. Check at which func/syscall dwm hangs through making a bt
full dump and send it to us.

Also consider a broken Xlib or a broken compiler.
