Emacs 21.1 Build Problems - Redhat Gnu/Linus 7.1

First, sorry about the cross-post.  I mistakenly sent this to gnu.emacs.help
before I realized that that was not the appropriate thing to do.

I am attempting to build Emacs 21 from source on Redhat and I'm running into
problems.  The final emacs left in the source directory is not a proper
executable file.

address@hidden src]$ ls -l emacs
-rwxr-xr-x    2 knolish  software  6615874 Nov  9 08:47 emacs
address@hidden src]$ od -x emacs | head
0000000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000
*
31171500 0000
31171502

I worked through the last few steps of the build by hand and found the
following:

./temacs -batch -l loadup dump

It produced an emacs and an emacs-21.1.1 file, but the file consisted of all
0's.  The temacs executable itself seemed to be fine.

I checked etc/PROBLEMS but didn't see anything that seemed to match my
symptoms.

My output from my configure step is

Configured for `i686-pc-linux-gnu'.

  Where should the build process find the source code?
/us/knolish/emacs-21.1
  What operating system and machine description files should Emacs use?
        `s/gnu-linux.h' and `m/intel386.h'
  What compiler should emacs be built with?               gcc -g -O2
  Should Emacs use the GNU version of malloc?             yes
      (Using Doug Lea's new malloc from the GNU C Library.)
  Should Emacs use a relocating allocator for buffers?    yes
  Should Emacs use mmap(2) for buffer allocation?         no
  What window system should Emacs use?                    x11
  What toolkit should Emacs use?                          LUCID
  Where do we find X Windows header files?                /usr/X11R6/include
  Where do we find X Windows libraries?                   /usr/X11R6/lib
  Does Emacs use -lXaw3d?                                 yes
  Does Emacs use -lXpm?                                   yes
  Does Emacs use -ljpeg?                                  yes
  Does Emacs use -ltiff?                                  yes
  Does Emacs use -lungif?                                 yes
  Does Emacs use -lpng?                                   yes
  Does Emacs use X toolkit scroll bars?                   yes

My system is

address@hidden ~/emacs-21.1]$ uname -a
Linux knolish-newdell 2.4.2-2 #1 Sun Apr 8 20:41:30 EDT 2001 i686 unknown

Any ideas as to why the dump facility in temacs wouldn't operate properly?

thanks
