Hopefully Ivan's suggestion solves your problem. One thing I'd suggest:
building in a different dir than the source. All you need is to put the
source in some dir (e.g. "src"), switch to an empty dir, and run
src/configure from there, followed by make. This makes for a cleaner
separation of source and products.
