autoconf, automake installation issues with ./configure

Hello List,
I'm running linux(redhat 9.0) on my windows machine using the virtual machine interface. I would like to install two software packages: autoconf-2.61 and automake-1.9.6
The installation instructions for each one of these packages states that I should cd to the folder and type "./configure"
However, on doing so I get the following message:
: bad interpreter: No such file or directory

when I type the following:
./configure --help
I get:
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

Can anyone shed some light as to what may be going on here? Do I need to upgrade bash? ( current bash verision : GNU bash,version 2.05b.0(1)-release(i386-redhat-linux-gnu)

Thanks for your time.
