Another glibc-2.2.4 configure error

Book version: 3.0, chap 6, glibc-2.2.4 configure; I've progressed 
through the book nearly exactly as it's written (only exception 
is adding -O6 and -march=pentium, unless told not to), and when I 
configure glibc, I get the following error:

/usr/src/glibc-build# ../glibc-2.2.4/configure --prefix=/usr \
>     --enable-add-ons --libexecdir=/usr/bin
creating cache ./config.cache
checking host system type... i586-pc-linux-gnu
checking sysdep dirs... Segmentation fault

I narrowed the segfault down to the "shift" statement in the configure 

# Expand the list of system names into a full list of directories
# from each element's parent name and Implies file (if present).
set $sysnames
while test $# -gt 0; do

  case " $names " in *" $name "*)
    # Already in the list.

(Just search for "shift" (first match) -- don't know what line it is)
