Today I jumped on the 3.1 update for Safari via Software Update on my brand new MacBook Pro. Sadly, the installation hung with the message under the progress bar, "Configuring Installation". I restarted, tried it again, and had the same result. To fix my problem:
  1. Deleted Safari.app from the /Applications folder
  2. Downloaded/Installed Safari 3.1 directly from Apple.com, here.

That's it, Safari Version 3.1 (5525.13) worked after a reboot.
