it looks like its trying to use a shell that you might not have (as opposed to say...bash)

edit ./configure and see what the very first line says

Dunno, but ZSH suggests that you have the "Z" shell set.

You can find stuff on that at google.

But I don't know if the Z shell is the same as BASH or different.

regards

Yeah, change to the /bin/bash shell and see if it works.

As root do chsh and console will prompt you to pick a new shell. /bin/bash should be the default one, so just press enter.
