which kind of puts you in the boat of fixing things yourself, no?  ;-)

Can you add 'set -x' as second line to the configure script, run it, and
try to analyze it?  If it doesn't help, we're looking for reasons why it
"loops" (create and spawn configure.lineno more than once, or so).

You can post some of the output here, but if it's large, then please
gzip it.

Please mention which versions of Autoconf, (what?) shell, libc, and
kernel you're using.  sed, grep, awk, coreutils can't hurt either.
