I expect that one option is to use GNU coreutils 'rm' instead of MacPorts 'rm'. Coreutils 'rm' should not have the bug you're observing.

Another option is to figure out why ./configure's test program isn't cleaning up after itself, which it's supposed to do. If you compile and run the attached program in your environment, what is its exit status and does it leave behind a directory? If it doesn't leave behind a directory, why does it work (i.e., not leave behind a directory) whereas ./configure's test program does not work? If it does leave behind a directory, can you fix it to not do that?
