My guess is that this is from

   cc=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL CC`
   cc=`echo ${cc} | sed "s/ .*//"`
   if test "`which ${cc}`" = "`which ${CC}`"; then

     shlib_ldflags=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL SHLIBLDFLAGS`
     cpicflags=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL PICFLAGS`
   fi
   cxx=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL CXX`
   cxx=`echo ${cxx} | sed "s/ .*//"`
   if test "`which ${cxx}`" = "`which ${CXX}`"; then      cxxpicflags=`${srcdir}/tools/GETMAKEVAL CXXPICFLAGS`    fi

in configure and so either your compilers are not set correctly or your OS's X11 does not find the compilers used to compile it.

I'd start by inserting debugging code in configure at that point to find out what ${cc} and ${CC} are, with the expectation that one is empty.
