Did you specify any compiler flags? No, you left them blank, which  
even according to the above line isn't a valid option.

The configure system attempts to detect as much stuff automatically as  
possible (which in your case it did for the options you didn't  
override). We expect people to only additional flags after finding the  
automatic detection failed. As such, the amount of validation of input  
is limited.

In that case, you didn't read the INSTALL document either. At least  
from packagers we expect that they read at least this document (and  
the README file).

I'll refrain from further comments.
