Yes, you should worry.... One thing you might do to debug it is to run
configure as "sh -x /path/to/configure". This echoes every sh command
that the script is running, so it should tell you exactly where the
error is coming from. (Tons of output, divert it to a file or run
through a pager). 

My best guess is that you have something in config.site that is not
supposed to be there.
