I don't think you should edit that file. Try doing the necessary editing
in the file 'config.site' instead. And/or use command line flags as
described in the file 'INSTALL', which should be read carefully. It is
in the top directory of the source tree.

I guess a good idea is to start all over, from unpacking...

Good luck!
