Trying to replicate this, but I can't. I'm using the latest 1.6 tarball, not 1.6.5, so it is possible something was fixed - though I believe we have committed very few changes as that series is about to drop to "deprecated".

First thing I encountered:

configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --disable-maintainer-mode, --enable-ltdl-convenience

the maintainer mode does matter.
So I removed those - no idea what they even do - but retained the rest of your configure options. I then used your cmd line, substituting "hostname" for "foo", and everything ran just fine on an ssh-based system. Here's my system info:

Well, I am testing on ia64, not x86_64. This one is OK.
