I was talking with Jeff Squyres about your issue and he thinks the
config.guess issue needs to be resolved first, even though your
specification of x86_64 seems to get you by.
So, do you still see the unexpected "(" if you try and run
config/config.guess directly? The original issue IIRC was:
etected VPATH build
checking build system type... ../config/config.guess: line 1102: syntax
error near unexpected token `('
../config/config.guess: line 1102: ` UNAME_REL=`(/bin/uname -X|grep
Release|sed -e 's/.*= //')`'
configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one
Can you manually run UNAME_REL=`(/bin/uname -X|grep Release|sed -e
's/.*= //')` in your shell without error?
