Actually, adding the "-f" should not have been necessary.  If you look
at that section of the configure script, you'll see that it creates the
files "conftest" and "conftest.c".  So they should have been there to be
removed.  This might indicate a problem in building the program that
does the "include" expansions in the makefiles.

Odd.  What does the command "make -n" output in that directory?

That's a bit old.  The current version is 1.12.1.  I suggest using it.
It's available at
