strange Glibc compile problem


I been searching all over the web and usenet archives (google) and FAQs to no avail.

Here the problem, everything confgures ok
[root@SRLINUX buildglibc]# ../glibc-2.3.2-20030312/configure 
         --enable-add-ons=linuxthreads --prefix=/usr/local/glibc-2.3.2

running configure fragment for sysdeps/i386/elf
running configure fragment for sysdeps/pthread
running configure fragment for sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux
checking for egrep... (cached) grep -E
checking installed Linux kernel header files... 2.0.10 or later
checking for symlinks in /usr/local/glibc-2.3.2/include... ok
running configure fragment for sysdeps/unix/common
running configure fragment for sysdeps/unix
running configure fragment for sysdeps/generic
checking for old glibc 2.0.x headers... no
checking whether -fPIC is default... no
configure: creating ./config.status
config.status: creating config.make
config.status: creating glibcbug
config.status: creating Makefile
config.status: creating config.h
config.status: config.h is unchanged
config.status: executing default commands
configure: configuring in linuxthreads
configure: running /bin/sh '../../glibc-2.3.2-20030312/linuxthreads/configure' 
         --prefix=/usr/local/glibc-2.3.2  '--enable-add-ons=linuxthreads' 
         '--prefix=/usr/local/glibc-2.3.2' --cache-file=/dev/null
but when I try to make (or make all or make check or make clean), I get this rather odd error:
make -r PARALLELMFLAGS="" CVSOPTS="" -C ../glibc-2.3.2-20030312 objdir=`pwd` all
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/glibc-2.3.2-20030312'
/bin/sh: command not found
make[1]: *** [configure] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/glibc-2.3.2-20030312'
make: *** [all] Error 2
I have all the required untlities as noted in the INSTALL and FAQ files.

RH 7.3
(uname -u) Linux SRLINUX 2.4.20-20.7 #1 Mon Aug 18 14:56:30 EDT 2003 i686 unknown

gcc-3.2-20020903 (compiled just before trying to compile glibc)
texinfo 4.1-1

And one more question. I'm actually upgrading from glibc-2.2.5-44 on this RH 7.3 box, is it safe to just overide the old, or would it be better it have an alternate prefix as I've atmpted to do? I've been working with Linux for a number of years now, and have becoem quite experienced. Upgrading glibc by compiling is something I have not done yet (though I've compiled a great many other things in Linux.)

Also, if it helps, my system is intel based (p3 i686 or so)
