That looks about right. I'm surprised you need the LDFLAGS, but I
can see where it might be needed, and I doubt it's causing the
problems you are seeing. Actually, mmm... depending on which LANL
system you are on, that might be needed for gm, so that makes sense.

I'm surprised you need the --build= flag, but again, not what is
causing issues here.

That's extremely weird. For some reason, we're trying to use the
epoll code, but it clearly isn't supported (as the linker so nicely
informs us). I'm a little curious how this can happen. Would you
mind sending the output of configure as well as the config.log file
it generates? Also, do you know what OS is running on that machine?
