Saying simply "TANDEM" is too vague.
If you request further assistance, please include more information,
like the output of the uname command.  That will give more detailed
hardware/os version-related information.

For starters, something about your system is wrong,
since these lines are appearing in each configure-generated
conftest.c program:

    | #define CHOWN_CHANGE_TIME_BUG 1
    | #define WORDS_BIGENDIAN 1
    | #define HAVE_DECL_STRERROR_R 0
    | #define HAVE_DECL_SETREGID 1
    | s line 1 of 5
    | You should not be reading this line 2 of 5
    | You should not be reading this line 3 of 5
    | You should not be reading this line 4 of 5
    | You should not be reading this line 5 of 5
    | /* end confdefs.h.  */
    | /* Thanks to Mike Rendell for this test.  */
    | #include <stdio.h>
    | #ifdef HAVE_SYS_TYPES_H
    | # include <sys/types.h>
    | #endif

Secondly, you're using "c89"

c89: running /usr/cmplr/ccombe -mP1OPT_version=0 -mP2OPT_kstaticize_locals=F 
-mP2OPT_memcpy_inline=F -mP1OPT_print_version=FALSE 
-mGLOB_obj_output_file=conftest.o -mIPOPT_obj_output_file_name=conftest.o 
-mP1OPT_source_file_name=conftest.c -ZO1 -Zg2 
-mGLOB_emit_both_nsk_line_tables=T -mP3OPT_linenum_dwarf2=T 
-mP3OPT_emit_line_numbers=T -D_XOPEN_SOURCE -ZR8 -Zf -ZT -D_TANDEM_SOURCE -Zz 
-I/usr/local/include -I/usr/include -D_LARGEFILE64_SOURCE=1 
  s line 1 of 5
"/home/basav/coreutils-8.12/conftest.c", line 122: error(114): identifier "s"
          is undefined

And if that really is a C89 compiler, it will fail to compile
coreutils.  But first you'll have to get past the configure problem.

Since this failure is clearly not due to a bug in coreutils
(or even autoconf, which generates configure), I've marked this
ticket as closed.  However, please do reply to tell us about how
you resolved the problem, so there's a record of it.  Then if/when
someone else encounters it, they'll find your solution at
