There was a problem running an earlier test which made the configure script 
think you're using a cross compiler, which you aren't. Often it's caused by a 
missing header file or library on your Redhat system.

The config.log file will tell you what went wrong and has the error messages 
that occured (those errors aren't displayed on your screen, they only appear 
in that config.log file).

Have a look at the file and see if you can find the problem. If you can't make 
head or tail out of it, attach the config.log file to an email and send it 
our way. We'll have a look for you then.
