When running ./configure (on more than one package I've noted) failure results if a function exists in the environment with a hyphen in it's name.

e.g. (at the bash prompt):

  echo That is all this func does ...

.... then later on ....



Configure fails !

Apparently ./configure parses the environment and upon encountering the function name with a dash(es) in it's name, blows a fuse ;)
