software configure:3474: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub

I am trying to build a SCIM software from source and configure command failed.

See below for error messages in config.log
configure:3099: checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C
configure:3169: gcc -c -g -O2 conftest.c >&5
configure:3175: $? = 0
configure:3179: test -z
|| test ! -s conftest.err
configure:3182: $? = 0
configure:3185: test -s conftest.o
configure:3188: $? = 0
configure:3206: result: none needed
configure:3224: gcc -c -g -O2 conftest.c >&5
conftest.c:2: error: syntax error before "me"
configure:3230: $? = 1

configure: failed program was:
| #ifndef __cplusplus
| choke me
| #endif

configure:3365: checking dependency style of gcc
configure:3455: result: gcc3
configure:3474: error: cannot run /bin/sh ./config.sub

I have installed g++-3.4 on Debian 3.1. I don't see file ./config.sub in the folder I run the configure command. Anyone know what is the problem?
