interesting, this is a v.similar system

->uname -a
Linux ... #1 SMP Mon Jan 21 13:29:51 UTC 2008 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
->cc -V
cc: Sun C 5.9 Linux_i386 Patch 124871-01 2007/07/31

I think we are looking in the wrong place, these syntax errors worry me,
I have never seen a configure script throw one before.

->ls -l /bin/sh
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 4 2008-04-02 02:13 /bin/sh -> bash

So it is running in bash, which is unlikely to cause problems. Looking
at the configure source it runs some near identical code for MCA basic
before retiring ungracefully immediately after deciding that it can
handle MCA bucket. Ungracefully hacking the offending parentheses
from configure causes some v.strange things to happen. I will continue
hacking but until this bears fruit... do you also need to include
'x86_64' as an argument for configure? What happens when you run 'uname -X'?
