It appears that the script config.status can't execute a file that it
creates.  This looks like a problem with your environment.

What is line 335 in file config.status?

What are the protections on directory
/data1/downloads/ncview/udunits-1.11.7/src and who are the owner and

The file configure.log is created by you to hold both the standard output 
and standard error of the configure script. For example

    $ ./configure >configure.log 2>&1
