Hi, and welcome to LQ!

That kind of message occasionally crops up if you have
values for CFLAGS in your environment that may conflict
with what ./configure is after.

Have a look at
env|grep FLAGS
If there are any values try to unset the variable, and
rerun configure. You should also look at the configure.log
for more detail.
